Store + Service Updates: COVID-19

 

In light of the current situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share that National Camera Exchange is taking steps to conduct business in a safe and responsible manner. We value our community and the health and safety of our customers and employees is our top priority. We plan to do our part to help limit the spread of this virus, and will continue following the recommendations of the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health.

We will update this page with the latest information regarding our stores and services, as the situation continues to evolve. Information will also be shared via email and social media. As always, please feel free to contact us via email or phone with any questions or concerns.

 

TEMPORARY STORE HOURS – GOLDEN VALLEY ONLY

Both stores remain closed to walk-in customers and our hours of operation at our Golden Valley location have been updated to weekdays from 10am to 5pm, and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. Our Photo Experts are available during these hours via phone (763.546.6831) to assist with any questions you may have regarding your equipment or specific imaging needs.

 

AVAILABLE SERVICES

New and used merchandise continues to be available through our website at natcam.com. We are also happy to help assist you in placing your merchandise order via phone.

Digital print services (including prints up to 12×18, posters up to 40×60, canvas wraps up to 11×14, and 1-sided flat cards) can be ordered online at print.natcam.com. Same-day services may not be available depending on the current workload. Scanning services are now available including: print-to-print scans, 35mm negative and slide scans, bulk scans, and flatbed scan services (up to 8×10). We are also accepting 35mm and 120 color and black & white film for processing. Our photo gifting services have also been resumed, and all metal prints are available with the exception of metal-on-metal prints.

If you are interested in trading in used gear towards a new purchase, we’re happy to help! You will need to provide the make, model, and serial number, as well as any accessories included with your gear. We will then hold the product for three days, and evaluate it after this waiting period has passed. At this point, we will offer a value for purchases already made or can apply it toward a current purchase of equipment. Outright purchases of your gear (without a trade) will depend on our current inventory as well as the item that you would like to sell. Please call with any questions.

Larger canvas prints, metal-on-metal prints, larger flatbed scan services, and all other archiving services remain temporarily suspended. Our Rental Department remains temporarily closed.

 

CURBSIDE PICK-UP + SHIPPING OPTIONS

Curbside pick-up is available to customers at our Golden Valley location for orders placed online or by phone, beginning Monday, May 11th. Items must be purchased via credit card, as we are not accepting cash at this time. Be sure to request curbside pick-up for online orders if you do not want your order to be shipped. Please call for assistance.

We will contact you when your order is ready for pick-up. Call 763.546.6831 when you arrive at our Golden Valley store, and we will place your order in the front vestibule for you to come pick up. Please be ready to inform us of the item(s) you are there to pick up, to help us expedite the process. Rest assured that there will be no person-to-person contact between our employees and customers, to protect the safety of everyone involved.

If you prefer to have your items shipped to you, free shipping continues to be offered for all online orders over $50. Please expect possible delays as our staff is limited during this time, but we will work to ship your orders out as quickly as possible.

 

CLASSES AND EVENTS

In-person classes and events are suspended until further notice. We value the educational experience that we are able to offer to our customers, and we remain dedicated to being a continued resource for our local photography community. We are currently researching a variety of online options for our classes and will provide updates as they become available. Please follow us on Facebook to stay updated with any online classes we add to our schedule.

 

ROSEVILLE LOCATION PERMANENTLY CLOSED

While we hoped to reopen both locations as life begins to resume after the Stay Home MN order, the time has come for us to close our Roseville location permanently. This decision has been difficult but necessary, as it allows us to continue serving your photographic needs for years to come. We are sad to say goodbye to Roseville, but we are excited for the possibilities the future brings as we continue to help you capture, create, and inspire.

Our Golden Valley store will be our sole location in the Twin Cities area, but we can always be found online at natcam.com. If you have any previous photofinishing or repair orders at Roseville, they can be picked up at Golden Valley beginning Monday, May 18th. Please call with any questions.

 

STEPS WE ARE TAKING TO ENSURE SAFETY

To protect the health of our customers and employees, all employees are required to wear masks while working inside the store. Employees that are handling product are required to wear gloves, and sanitize items and their surrounding areas frequently. There will be no direct contact between employees and customers, and staff members will be at least six feet apart at all times. We plan to be cautious during this reopening process and will reevaluate procedures regularly to ensure the continued safety of our customers and staff.

 

CONTACT US

Our Photo Experts are available during store hours via phone (763.546.6831) and email (sales@natcam.com), to assist with any questions you may have during this time.
