Toss That Ironic Sweater You Were Saving: Sears Portrait Studio Is No MoreS

Fuuuuck! If you've been meaning to do that professional hideous-Christmas-outfit group photo (or some other variation, as did my siblings and myself) for the last five years or thereabouts, we've got some bad news for you.

Newser reports that the Sears Portrait Studio, purveyor of delightful, unintentionally (and then intentionally) awkward family photos (memes before memes were memes!) since 1959 has suddenly closed, although Sears is currently "exploring all options" to resume their portrait services.

It was only a matter of time, since iPhone and digital camera pictures have taken the place of physical prints, as well as many professional photographers' jobs. :-|
