R.I.P Jessops 1935 - 2013
It still makes me angry when I think about it. But other than the really specialist independent shops where are we supposed to go now? (And don't say PC World!) I'm angry that we now don't have a nationwide high street camera or photographic store in this country anymore, I'm angry that instead of saving the economy, peoples jobs, livelihoods, businesses, the high street, this government has instead sat back and concerned itself with other things or has just turned a blind eye to the multitude of business going under. I'm angry that hundreds and thousands of people and customers have been robbed of their money and goods by yet another high street store going under leaving everyone out of pocket. And I'm angry that the tax dodging all consuming internet has been free and allowed to run amuck it's wholesale destruction of retail and the real world of real shopping.
I could of posted a picture of any branch of Jessops but this is my 'local' one to where I work and it's the branch where I've got most of my camera's and camera gear from. And without exception, I've always got a deal on every camera I've bought here.
