Digital photos force Walden's Photo out

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Digital photography will leave a family-owned business as a picture of Cedar Falls past.

After 79 year's, Walden's Photo is going out of business and shutting its Cedar Falls and Ames stores. Though the rough economy played a role in the closing, co-owner Mike Walden says the advancements in digital photography mean less people need their services.

"It's a mature industry that's going through a lot of changes and turmoil, and it's going to get tougher on the small photo retailer before it gets better," said Walden.

Walden's Photos in Ames will close December 31st, while the Cedar Falls branch will stay open unitl the end of January.
