Woodbury Proex to Close

The store is offering discounts on most items; workers couldn't say when it would shut down.

The Woodbury Proex Portrait seemed busy Wednesday afternoon, and it might have been due to the big signs on the windows.

The parent company is closing its remaining four Minnesota locations, according to a Star Tribune story. In Woodbury, signs on the windows and in the store advertised 20-40 percent off most items.

Workers at the Woodbury store—located at 1575 Queens Drive—couldn't say when it would close.

The stores are closing as part of a court-approved bankruptcy liquidation after Ritz Camera & Image failed to find a buyer for the chain, the Star Tribune reports.

It is too bad! We have had many family and baby portraits taken there!

Where will we be able to go now to get quality/affordable portraits taken? This is a huge disappointment for me & my family.

Yeah, I saw some of those type of photos on the walls there yesterday and it was kind of sad. A lot of people said the same thing on our Facebook page.

Someone asked if there are other options in the area. Anybody know?

Portrait Innovations in Tamarack Village is a good affordable option. That's where my wife takes out kids.

Gro Photo in Oakdale by Kmart also does a beautiful job on family photo sessions and is reasonably priced.
