DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The first in a chain of Polaroid-branded photo shops has opened its doors in Florida.

Polaroid Fotobar is hoping to coax customers to free their pictures from smartphones, digital cameras and Facebook and put them in print.

The glistening new store took a page from Apple in its retail design. Visitors take a seat at the bar, wirelessly upload images and choose how they want them produced, from $1 prints similar to the original Polaroid to massive $2,500 slabs of acrylic housing their photos.

Fotobar plans to open additional stores across the U.S. throughout the year.
