A Sad Farewell to Fairbanks Photo [Video]

"The monthlong goodbye to Darien is going to be hard, but I look forward to a new chapter in my life," said owner George McKnight.

After 63 years of operation, Darien's Fairbanks Photo will close its doors at the end of the month, owner George McKnight announced earlier this week.

"In this uncertain economic climate and break-neck paced technological time one needs to assess if they can maintain the course or pursue the 'next chapter,'" McKnight said Wednesday. "Unfortunately, this assessment has shown that it is time to say farewell to what is known and chart the new course."

Fairbanks Photo, located at 1098 Post Road, has been family owned and operated since 1947. Patch stopped in to speak with McKnight this week and take a final tour around the beloved shop.
