CARMEL — Roberts Camera announced its Carmel storefront will be closing after 20 years on Tuesday. It plans to consolidate all services with its downtown Indianapolis store come March.
A social media post by Roberts Camera announcing the store's closure states that online shopping combined with the impact of COVID-19 is what forced the owners to "take a very long, hard look at the best way to move our business forward."
"We are not sad or distressed about this change. In fact, we are excited and invigorated by the positive effects of this move," the Facebook post read. "We believe that centralizing our operations into one facility will improve our efficiencies and allow us to create a better, superior shopping experience for you."
According to Roberts Camera, "many" of the Carmel store employees will also be moving to the downtown Indy location.
"From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the incredible years of business and support in Carmel and for allowing us to be part of such an amazing community. We look forward to seeing you just a few miles south in Indy!"
Roberts Camera first opened in Indianapolis in 1957.
The Carmel store's last day open will be on Saturday, March 27.
