Re: Jessops in admin.

When Jessops came to prominence in the 1970's and 80's they were often criticized through their aggressive marketing and price cutting policies, of driving small independent camera shops out of business. When they started Jessops had one flagship store in Liecester, but most of their business was done by mail order. I'm sure that a lot of customers went to their local store to view an item and then finished up purchasing it by mail order from Jessops, just like people are doing with the internet.
Jessops once had a separate "Internet only" sales division (running under a different name - I cannot recall what it was), but management incompetence ensured it's demise.

I've been a Jessops customer many times in the past, and must have put hundreds (if not thousands) of pounds over their counters (most recently a Sony NEX5N outfit in September.)

What goes around comes around, as they say.
