For 135 years, Dury’s has provided the local community with the equipment and skills needed to practice the art and science of photography.  But now, the longstanding camera shop in Nashville, will permanently close its doors.

Dury’s President/CEO Charles Small made the announcement via Facebook:

“After very careful consideration, I have made the difficult decision to close our doors for good. This is something that when I started working for this company in 1991 I never in a million years thought I would ever be doing. In the last eight weeks I have seen our business and lives turned upside down. I have spent countless hours working with advisers and thinking through every angle I could. I have consulted with our board of directors and accountants. Unfortunately, closure was the decision that we reached,” wrote Small. 

“I want to thank all our customers for your loyal support over the years and I am sure we will see you again. I also want to thank our staff for their long years of service. Many have worked for the company for ten years or more and I can not thank them enough for the hard work that they have put in. We will continue to post updates as we know more, and we hope that everyone stays safe and healthy.”

The store will not be taking any new lab orders. Customer should check their Facebook page for updates on pick up dates for current labs.

Dury’s is located at 1027 Murfreesboro Road, Nashville.
