There’s no doubt that today’s digital age has increased our quality of life, bringing us eBook readers (sayonara, paper cuts), apps that allow us to superimpose Paris Hilton into photos so it really looks like she’s our bff (finally) and, of course, digital cameras. Still, no matter how convenient it is to view photos on smartphones or computer screens, it’s always nicer to print them out and display them proudly in an album. It’s also always required to provide a printed photo of yourself if you’re planning on leaving the country any time soon. Today’s WagJag gives you pictures in their old-school, tangible form: for $4, you get an option of 100 4" X 6" photo prints or a passport photo at Mike & Lori's No Frills Photo Lab.
Mike & Lori's No Frills Photo Lab has Kodak Kiosks that allow you to easily upload your pictures from a CD or memory card, then use a touch screen to pick and choose your favourite shots for printing in a glossy or matte finish. You’ll be able to edit each photo to your liking; there are tools for cropping, reducing red eye, restoring colour or brightness and changing an image to sepia or black and white. Once the job is done, you’ll place your order and be able to pick up your prints within a few hours. If you’re using this ’Jag to put the finishing touches on your passport, the process is even simpler. Passport photos are taken on the spot in the lab, and usually ready within 10 minutes.
In addition to printing services, Mike & Lori’s No Frills boasts a pharmacy with a drive-through window for prescription pick up. It’s also got the best of what any No Frills has to offer; fresh groceries and dry goods for prices way lower than the average big box store’s.
