The Fotobar, a retail concept being unveiled by Polaroid, will open its first store next month at the Delray Marketplace, a shopping center at Atlantic Avenue and Lyons Road.
The idea is that the Fotobar will turn cellphone photographers into artists capable of making their own family portraits and living room wall hangings. The store will offer photos mounted on a variety of materials that range from heavy-stock paper to canvas, wood, metal, acrylic and bamboo.
The non-paper reproductions will be handled by the company’s manufacturing facility in Boca Raton and later sent to customers.
The Fotobar store will be part gallery of amateur photographs, part arts-and-crafts store and part classroom for anyone looking to become more tech-savvy when it comes to photography, Struhl said. And it will host parties and provide a portrait studio for customers to use.
