    If they're still available, I think you would find such things in a camera shop.

    Re: photo shop??

    So what's the meaning of a photo shop? What can you buy there?
    By the way what can you buy in a camera shop?

    I can't find the word 'camera shop' as a title in my dictionaries, would you plz say the name of a store in which a professional photographer takes your photo for business or art?

    A professional photographer probably works in an office or studio, not a shop, and he will probably not sell you film. But your original question asked about buying film. What is it you really want to know?

    Here it's a picture in my book, a picture of a store which has film packages and some CDs or albums on the shelves and the question is 'Where does John work?' (John is a clerk in this shop)

    We'd probably say, He works at (for example) "Entertorama". People who know the name of the store would know what it sold. People who didn't know would ask about it.

    Where I am, the shops which sell film usually do printing of photos as well. The same shops may also provide photography services. They are called photo shops/camera shops/photography shops.
