Polaroid Fotobar, a new retail concept from the once undisputed king of quick photograph technology, has launched in Delray Beach, Florida. According to Chain Store Age, users can bring in photos from their smartphones and leave with “museum quality” prints. Long before Instagram was ubiquitous, Polaroid disrupted the photography world – they are hoping their new concept store can once again help them make waves.
From the article:
Polaroid Fotobar has a modern, streamlined look, with sleek lines. The Delray Beach location will serve as a prototype for nine additional cites due to open this year, including locations in New York, Las Vegas, and Boston.
Customers can upload photos from their device to one of the store’s many workstations, where they can enhance the images with special filters, adjust the brightness, and make other adjustments. Once the images are uploaded and adjusted, customers can choose from a wide variety of materials and framing options. Images can be framed, matted, and/or printed directly onto a variety of unique substrates including canvas, metal, acrylic, wood and bamboo.
