Can anyone help.

->> There is a Ritz, Bob Jones Photo Supply and 2 Calagaz Photo Supply Incs. in Mobile.
I doubt there is anything in Gulf Shores. Which direction are you traveling? If you are going south on I-65, you will actually go through Foley. There may be something there, if you aren't already planning on going to Mobile since the Bay seperates it from Gulf Shores.
I do not know store specfics, but I know the area.

Your best bet may be to stop at one of those places in Mobile. If you are flying into Mobile, the airport is on the far west side of town and you will take Airport Blvd east to I-65. Your drive will take you past several large shopping centers and traffic will be moving slowly enough that you can safely take a look around.

Have fun at the Flora-Bama.

->> John --

It depends on where you are flying into.

In Mobile, if you're looking for chrome, the Calagaz north of Springdale Mall will be your best bet. There is a small Calagaz in a strip mall on Schillinger out near the Airport, too.

Bob Jones Photo on Government near the Loop was only open Tuesday and Friday, and may be totally closed now.

There are several Ritz stores all over Mobile, but I don't know just what kind of film stocks they carry beside print film.

Not sure about the photo stores in Pensacola.

If you need more information, shoot me an email from my member page, and I'll try to help.

Jason, FYI, I-65 doesn't go through Foley. It terminates at the I-65/I-10 junction just south of Mobile about 20 miles west of the I-10 exit for Loxley, Foley and Gulf Shores. Highway 59 goes south to the beaches.

->> You are correct. I haven't been down there in at least 5 years. Used to tear Lamberts up every trip. Now I live 2 hours from the original!!

But I will be on Daughin Isl in June for 5 days.!!
