Living near Park Cameras, Jessops never really hit my radar.  Why, less of a range and more expensive.

I think in the last 10 years I have probably spent about 1% of my photo spend there, 80% and Park Cameras and the rest spread around other outlets.  I don't think my spending would be that atypical.

25 years ago, Jessops were a cutting edge retailer, from whom I would regularly visit and often purchase equipment.  Somehow the company lost it way, did not adapt to changes in the market.  A shame to see it go and I feel for the many excellent and staff employed there.  The fault lies with a complacent or incompetent management team who failed to respond to the times and make the hard decisions needed today to keep a company successful.
