Snapfish Goes Retail, Exploring Marriage With Its Online Service

An interesting sidebar: Snapfish is a major online competitor to Kodak's Ofoto. Yet, District owns Snapfish; District serves all Qualex mid-Atlantic customers; Snap Shops are Kodak KICS stores; District uses all Kodak paper, etc. As they say, "Business is business."

Kodak's reaction to being a supplier to District as District is a supplier to Kodak as well as a competitor, a spokesperson said, "Ofoto has no retail solution today. As for District-Snapfish having KICS stores, we have no online service to offer. They can go any way they choose."

Nice to see such friendly competitors in our industry.
