Rainier, Dick's Camera Combine Experience


Earlier this year, Jonathan Stone, president of Rainier Photographic Supply, purchased Dick's Camera from Dick Dahlgard, who had owned and operated the Seattle-based business since 1969. In February, Rainier Photographic Supply moved from its Rainier Valley location, where it has operated since 1976, to the Dick's store in Burien, Wash., one mile west of Sea-Tac Airport. Phone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail addresses for both stores remain unchanged.

Dahlgard is retiring from a career that began in 1954, when he joined the original Tall's Cameras. Dick's Camera began with locations in Burien, Federal Way and Issaquah, Wash., eventually consolidating operations at the Burien store, which opened in 1978.
