Calumet Photographic in Europe[edit]

I work for Calumet Photographic in the United Kingdom, so there's a clear financial conflict-of-interest to any edits I would make. That said, it would be great if someone could expand this article to include more information about Calumet in Europe as right now this article is mostly about Calumet Photographic in the US.

As is well documented on the page, Calumet Photographic, Inc. (the US company) went bankrupt on March 12th, 2014. What the page is missing, however, is that Calumet Photographic, Ltd. (in the UK), Calumet Photographic GMbH (in Germany) and Calumet Photographic B.V. (in the Netherlands) are all still open and were not impacted by the US bankruptcy.

The German version of this page does mention this a little bit: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calumet_Photographic

And Calumet UK made an official statement at the time: https://www.ephotozine.com/article/calumet-uk-release-official-statement-24310 And an article with quotes from within the company, also dating from the time of the bankruptcy: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/latest/photo-news/calumet-shuts-down-photo-stores-in-united-states-6614

From their sites themselves you can see that all the remaining companies, plus now a location in Belgium, are open for business:

https://www.calphoto.co.uk https://www.calumetphoto.de https://www.calumetphoto.nl https://www.calumetphoto.be

Further, there are news articles from after the bankruptcy about ongoing Calumet Photo UK activities:

Any help adding clarity to the page about the European stores would be much appreciated!

Error on cite note 2[edit]

Does anyone have any guidance on how to resolve the error on the second footnote? (Invalid <ref> tag; name "SL" defined multiple times with different content (see the help page).) I consulted the help page but wasn't sure how best to proceed. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ubik Decker (talkcontribs) 12:03, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
