What happened to the Sears picture studio?
CPI, a business Sears contracted with for photography, ended its American-based operations Thursday.
Sears spokesman Howard Riefs provided the following response:
"We were notified (Thursday) that CPI is ceasing its U.S. operations at retailers across the country immediately. CPI is a separate, publicly traded company that managed and operated Sears Portrait Studios as a licensed business. We are working with CPI to ensure that it fulfills its outstanding orders and provides ordered pictures to our members and customers. We regret any inconvenience this has caused our members and customers."
