Are there any Pentax dealers in VA?

The PENTAX website only allows you to enter a zip code but gives no indication of a search radius. I went on chat with PENTAX and was told the search only looks within that zip code. You gotta be kidding. They want me to search one zip code at a time? I live in the Virginia Beach/Norfolk/Hampton/Portsmouth/Newport News metroplex, a big place, I travel to DC often and have to pass through Richmond to get there. Surely among those three large metroploitan areas, there's someplace I can actually touch a new Pentax.

Anybody...? Anybody???

It does search outside the Zip code. When I entered the Zip code for Liverpool, NY (a northern suburb of Syracuse) it came up with Ra-Lin Discount in Syracuse.

It certainly makes sense to search outside a single zipcode, but chat boy was trying to tell me different. That however seems to suggest that there's no Pentax dealers in the three largest population concentrations in VA. Wow. Can that be true?

I live in Richmond and, sadly, don't know of any shops around here who carry Pentax. I think there are a couple (like literally 2) around NoVA/DC that carry some Pentax stuff. I forget how I stumbled upon them, through some sort of Google search for something. Penn Camera seems to stick in my mind, but I can't swear to it. If you find someplace good around here please let us know, though I doubt one will exist. Pentax is basically gone from brick & mortar stores.

I've heard tell (from Mike Riley, I think) of a place called Ace in NoVa.
