Costco posted a new update on their online Costco Photo Center page on Monday. Unfortunately, it’s not great news if you were in desperate need of photo developing services and can’t make it to your local store. It looks like CostcoPhotoCenter.com won’t be back to working order until early September, though there is a possibility it could make it back sometime during the last week of August. Here’s the update they have posted:
We appreciate and thank you for your ongoing patience – we understand the impact this is having on each of you! Through today, we’ve made significant progress toward re-enabling the Photo Center site; however, there’s additional work to be done before it’s ready to go live. We know the previous anticipated dates have come and gone, but we’re doing everything we can to bring a safe & secure site back on line as soon as possible. With that said, we are now anticipating that the site will be back online within the next 1-2 weeks. Thank you again for your loyalty and ongoing patience.
For the background on this situation, you can read my original post about the third party vendor security issue that brought this on in the first place. This is only a problem for the Costco US online photo website, none of their other sites or locations around the world are affected by this issue.
