Calumet Photographic, a Chicago-based camera supply and photo services provider that first opened 1939, has abruptly closed its doors and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.

Calumet said on its Facebook page that it was closing its stores in the United States, but that its European stores would remain.

Some employees took to Facebook and Twitter to express anger over the sudden closure, saying they were not given prior notice.

In its Chapter 7 filing, in which a company prepares to liquidate, it listed between $50 million and $100 million in assets and $10 million to $50 million in liabilities.

“It has been a joy to share our passion for photography with you all of these years,” the company posted on Facebook. “We’ll miss each other and we’ll miss all of our customers. Thank you for everything.”
