Rode's Camera Shop
The legacy started in 1911; when John Rode Sr. quit his full-time job to take his passion of photography and turn it into a family business. John Rode Sr. started by offering black & white film processing to local merchants, and he would have the local bakery truck drivers pick up and deliver the processing orders. Eventually, they moved the family business out of their home and opened up their storefront. As the years passed John Rode Jr. and then John Rode, III joined the family business with each generation adding to the success of the business. Rode’s Camera Shop reached a major milestone of being in business for 100 years in 2011. John Rode, III decided he was ready to retire and enjoy golf and his grandchildren and sold the business to his employees so they could benefit from the fruits of their labor.
