Unique Photo Moves Headquarters to Fairfield, New Jersey For Better Accessibility

FAIRFIELD, NJ, Apr 29 - Unique Photo, a supplier of high quality photographic equipment and technology to the world, has relocated its headquarters in New Jersey from Florham Park to Fairfield, NJ. The 123 Route 46W address is conveniently located to provide easy access to Unique's new superstore.

In creating "New Jersey's only dedicated photography superstore," COO Matthew Sweetwood expects to increase Unique's marketshare in the photographic industry. With over 5000 products on display, 20,000 products in stock and a reputation for outstanding personalized customer service, Unique Photo will celebrate 61 years of providing cameras (traditional and now a full range of digital equipment including video) film and accessories from printers to paper to photographic software with a series of grand openings from May 28 to June 30.

"From Canon and Nikon to Epson, Lowepro, Epson, Tamron, Fuji and more, the Superstore is stocked with everything an amateur or professional photographer, beginner or advanced, could need to produce beautiful images," says Mr. Sweetwood. "We have also just initiated Unique University, New Jersey's only photography school for beginners to professionals.

"Photographers from all over the world have come to Unique for advice, equipment and service," he adds. "The new facility will make it easier to find, provide a welcoming atmosphere and offer an expanded selection of products at discounted prices. With a coffee bar and an authentic electronically equipped classroom, Unique's new space is like a city."

Founded in 1947 in Brooklyn by Harriet and Bernard Sweetwood, the camera store moved to Hoboken in 1954 as Hoboken Camera Center. This was followed by relocations to Kearny, Orange and, the last, to Florham Park in 1996 and is currently operated by Matthew and Jonathan Sweetwood. Matthew is Chief Operating Officer; Jonathan is Chief Financial Officer.

The company employs 75 persons and is considered one of the largest and most successful providers of photographic equipment and technology in the world.
