All Costco photo centers will soon close.

In a message titled “Important Photo Center Announcement” posted on the Costco Photo Center website, the retailer said photo departments at all Costco locations will close Feb. 14.

Some services will be available on the website for delivery, including prints, enlargements and posters; stationary and photo greeting cards; photo books and calendars; photo blankets and other photo gifts; and business printing products.

After the centers close, a few other services won’t be available such as ink refill, passport photos, photo restoration and YesVideo Home Movie Transfer Service, Costco said in the announcement.
