    My dad worked at the A&P and the was a Fotomat in the parking lot, one day we had a pretty bad snowstorm and when he was leaving the parking lot my dad slid into the Fotomat, geez.

      The Fotomat I worked at was in the A&P parking lot also. I always worried in the winter about someone sliding into the booth. It was at the bottom of a slight incline. No one did while I worked there.

      Some places still develop film, like Meijer’s and Walmart…you may want to check other places too.

    I was wondering why Fotomat closed and found this site. I use to work for Fotomat in 1975. I loved working there. I met lots of interesting people. In the summer we were so busy. It was not rare to bring in 1000.00 dollars in one shift of work. This is bringing back many memories. At one point I was one of the top ten Fotomates in the Detroit Michigan area. Thanx for the memories.

    I worked at a service station in the Naples section of Long Beach, CA that had a fotomat kiosk on the lot. I see that you mention blue uniforms, but I distinctly remember the gals that worked at this location wore dresses that had a narrow horizontal stripe pattern alternating in yellow and red(narrow stripes).
