Asda Photo Centre
Advantages: Asda price
In the foyer of my local Asda in Middlesbrough we have a large Asda photo centre, i have used this shop a few times in the last couple of months for prints and my partner purchased a camera.
About The Shop
My Asda photo centre is a shop within a shop, firstly on the sales side of things it sells everything from digital camera's, camcorders, batteries, cases, memory cards, digital photo frames and photographic gifts like cups, bags and T-shirts with photo's on, everything is on display for you to pick up and have a good look at, as it's part of Asda there is often some good special offers digital camera's and other stuff.
The second service this centre offers is obviously Photo developing, everything from your traditional 35mm film roll to any digital picture from a camera, mobile phone or just about any type of memory card you have, the digital side of this service is sort of semi-self service, within the centre the are several machines with screens and slots for memory cards, you simply insert your camera or phone's memory card into the slot or even Bluetooth your pics over to the machine and then your on your way, all the pictures are displayed on screen and you choose the ones you want to print, then you can choose the instant or 2 hour service, go ahead and press print or go into the editing section were you can enlarge, shrink, crop and do various other things to get your photo's exactly how you want them, all this editing does not cost extra and you can take as much time as you like, once your happy and you press the print button the prints are handed to you by the staff and you pay for them.
I often just pop in for a quick look about for bargains and have picked up some cheap memory cards like a 2g SD card for £4, my partner bought her digital camera here, the staff were very friendly and helpful without being pushy, explaining what functions and features you need/don't need and what good offers they had on at that time, we think we got a good camera at a good price.
When we wanted some very small (3cm x 4cm) Photo's printed for a picture frame clock off we went back to Asda photo centre, the girl working in the centre remembered us from buying the camera and was friendly and helpful from the start explaining how we could Bluetooth to the machine or pop the memory card in, she then done a quick example of how to choose, edit (shrink) and print the photo's then left us to it, it took us about 10 mins to edit and print 6 pics and they were then ready to collect and pay for.
The price for standard 6 x 4 prints is 20p each, although we shrank ours to a very small size it's still printed out on the minimum 6 x 4 paper and we had to cut them out, I was very pleased with the quality of the photo's.
Knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff.
Staff speak plain English.
Good choice of camera's and accessories.
Very competitive pricing.
Easy to use self service editing/printing machines.
Good quality prints.
The self service screens are in view to other people in the store.
Not for the serious photographer looking for 35mm lenses, filters ect.
Everything you need for general photography at competitive prices with friendly staff and easy to use self service photo printers, if I need a camera or some prints doing I will be heading back to Asda photo centre, highly recommended.
I dont know how many large Asda stores have photo centres but if you have one near you try it.
