Cal's to close after nearly 50 years

COSTA MESA — Cal's Cameras & Video will close its doors in November after a nearly 50-year run, a representative from the store said Thursday.

Citing changing technology in the photography industry, the Costa Mesa store on Newport Boulevard near Triangle Square will close at some point next month, said Mark Stilley, son of Cal's founder Cal Stilley.

The family-operated business opened in 1962 after buying out the previous owner, who had operated a camera business in the same location since 1948.

The store sells film and digital cameras, and provides film development, prints, rentals and darkroom supplies.
