Digital Imaging Reporter Names Hunt’s Photo & Video as their First E-tailer of the Year
July 2013 --- Digital Imaging Reporter has announced that Hunt's Photo & Video" is the recipient of their first E-tailer of the year award.
Hunt’s Photo & Video is a vibrant, innovative, eight-store family enterprise
that proudly proclaims itself as "New England’s Largest Photography
Retailer." It is also one of the nation's oldest, having evolved from an
iconic New England drugstore chain with an early Kodak franchise
established by William B. Hunt way back in 1889.
By the early 1950s, Hunt Drug had been acquired by Solomon Farber ,
one of the store’s pharmacists. Farber ran it with his sons as a family
business based in Malden Center, not far from the present flagship
store in Melrose, Massachusetts.
Hunt’s really began building its camera business under the visionary
leadership of Solomon’s son Jack, who recognized the great upside
potential of photography and astutely foresaw the inevitable demise of
small neighborhood pharmacies, as national chains and supermarkets took
over that market.
Since then, Hunt’s has steadily expanded and
now has stores in Melrose, Cambridge, Boston, Hadley and Hanover,
Massachusetts; Manchester, New Hampshire; Portland, Maine; and
Providence, Rhode Island.
