Sarber’s Camera Store Celebrates its 50th Anniversary with a No Sales Tax Event and an iPad 2 Drawing

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Sarber’s Camera began in downtown Oakland and still operates under the business name Oakland Camera Exchange, Inc. Peter Sarber moved the main store to the Montclair Village in 1963 and has resided there ever since, having opened and closed other locations throughout the East Bay. Currently, Sarber’s operates a second location in Albany at 1483 Solano Ave. Sarber’s has had a location on Solano Ave. for 17 years.

To commemorate their 50th year in business, they are inviting everyone to come in and celebrate with them October 13th through October 16th at the Annual “We Pay the Sales Tax” Event. What that means is that anyone who purchases a camera during this time period will not have to pay any taxes on equipment, camera accessories, or photo products. In addition, with the purchase of any Olympus camera now through October 31st, you will be entered into a drawing to win an IPad2. If that wasn’t enough, Sarber’s celebration is extending 20% discounts on holiday photo greeting cards ordered In-store or online through October 31st. Sarber’s is a great camera store for photography classes, camera accessories or any workshop you may want to take that takes you from amateur to professional photography.
