Creve Coeur Camera was founded in 1974 in the St. Louis suburb of Creve Coeur. A small camera store had gone out of business, and customers had contacted the building owner, Ron Henges, for help in retrieving their photo finishing and repaired cameras. Mr. Henges was able to help them, and many customers recommended he re-open the store because the area really needed one.
Due to the advent of easy-to-use 35mm cameras at that time, sales boomed and topped $1,000,000 in the second year of operation. The original store was moved and enlarged several times as business grew. The current flagship store in Creve Coeur consists of 12,000 square feet of selling area. It includes a full service centralized lab and two classrooms consisting of 3,000 feet total.
The first branch store was opened in 1980, and the first in-house one hour "mini lab" in 1983. Today Creve Coeur Camera operates ten locations: Creve Coeur, Ellisville, St. Charles, Ladue, South County, Crestwood, O'Fallon IL, Edwardsville IL, Springfield IL, and Columbia MO. The rapid growth of the company is due to three major factors: an exciting variety of products, regular and effective advertising and promotions, and, most importantly, a serious commitment to customer service.
