The legacy began in 1918. In that year Benjamin Ritz began operating a portrait studio on the famous boardwalk in Atlantic City. With the success of the studio in Atlantic City, Benjamin opened additional studios in New York and Philadelphia. In 1936 Benjamin traveled to Washington DC to open a film-processing lab with his younger brother Edward. At this time our customers could get quality black and white film developed and printed overnight for 25 cents a roll.
Today we are known as Ritz & Wolf Camera & Image, the premier retail destination for cameras and imaging. Ritz & Wolf is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and operates more than 300 stores in 36 states from coast to coast.
In July 2003, the company launched an online imaging site – RitzPix.com, providing online ordering and pick-up at retail locations. Offering services for prints, online storage and more than 100 personalized photo gifts, the company continues to dedicate its legacy to empowering consumers to share, display and save all of life’s treasured memories. In 2010, RitzPix.com announced unprecedented “no extra cost” one-day shipping to complement the company’s long standing one-hour pick-up in stores. This “one hour/one day” delivery initiative can’t be found at any other online or in-store imaging retailer and will offer customers the quickest and most affordable shipping and pick-up in the country.
