They were open last week, and didn't have any indication that I saw that they were closing. You weren't there too early, were you? They don't open till about 9 or 9.30.

Oh dear, sad news for the photographic community... along with a few other places that have closed down recently. I remember when they started up in Wellington in the eighties, although I'm not sure whether this was where they started, or whether they were already going in Auck....?
Another victim of digital tech plateauing in development, along with the uptake of smartphones and online retailers...

I think as things move online, the market is only able to sustain so many businesses, and the innovative or the bigger ones win usually.

IANAL, and am happy to be corrected, but I believe that anyone who has vouchers, store credits, gift cards, etc. for retail organisations becomes an unsecured creditor and joins the queue ( at the back) to try and recover the 'debt'

which is why you should always make large purchases with a credit (not debit) card

Probably depends on the T&C of the credit card issuer for the particular account you have.

From my experiences, "warning" about companies at risk of going bust is mainly futile - if the warning has some truth to it, then it's too late unless you have physical access to goods etc and can pick them up before the doors are locked - which is very unlikely.  Running a business for 20 odd years, the (fortunately rare) large client receiverships were all pretty much bolts out of the blue, only loosely correlated to how up to date their payments were.  They might be paying their bills on time and looking rosy, but you can't know if IRD is hanging a big threat over their heads with a massive unpaid GST/PAYE bill, or the bank gave them 7 days before they withdrew credit facilities. or someone suddenly emptied the accounts into a suitcase and jumped on a plane headed for Timbuktu.
However, in the case of retail purchase where there's a NZ master agent for the product paid for, I'd be approaching them with fingers crossed - though their attitude might be sullied if they've also lost a bundle of $$$.
