    Visited my local Jessops (yes, I felt dirty afterwards and needed a bath) in Norwich and see they are offering 3 for 2 on all films. If the sales oik is to be believed, this also included boxes of 5x4 !

    I gave up looking in Jessops Norwich after they started selling film at almost double mail order prices. Ten years ago Jessops was competitive, I wonder what went wrong?...

    20 years ago Jessops was THE cheapest place to buy almost anything and everything photographic

    What went wrong - they got too big, thought they had a dominant market position and could didctate what they would sell and how much to charge for it, then the internet came along and people could shop anywhere in the country and the Channel Islands saw a gap open in the market.

    Do you remember their price slogan - "if you can find it cheaper anywhere we will refund the difference" ?

    Jessops can work out cheap if you're near enough to a branch to make it worthwhile to order online and collect in store. Prices are mostly in line with the mail order places but you save the postage cost. A 3.8 litre pack of D76 is £5.95. 5 litres of Ilford Multigrade developer is £19.95.

    Of course when you turn up to collect you have to be pretty clear about what you're there to pick up: they haven't got a clue what they're selling you.

    Well here's a (sort of) bargain if you want one. I'm giving away a Kodak Printank (remember those?). I bought it in 1974 and used it twice. It's boxed with original instructions. I believe these can be modified for processing sheet film and each process step requires on 40 ml of chemistry. Either collect in person or pay the postage (£4.90 - UK only) and it's yours. It's in excellent condition and, apart from one or two chemical stains on the outside, very, very clean. It doesn't leak (I've tested it) and there are no strings attached. It was posted on Ebay but no takers - so f**k 'em! PM me if you're interested. Dear Mr. and Mrs. (or Ms) Mod. I did think about putting this on the FREE STUFF thread, but this is a UK give away only and I didn't want to upset my international brothers and sisters by stipulating UK only! Regards, B.

    I bought 3 boxes of 5x4 FP4 from my local Jessops on the 3 for 2 price deal

    They had to phone other shops to round the film up - and it was a bit painful because they obviously didn't do much in the way of film - but it worked.

    FP4 is the only 5x4 B&W Film Jessops sell these days but the film stock I bought was reasonably fresh

    I just went to the Poundland in Manchester Arndale, they have just stock up with the Agfa Vista Plus. I think they have replaced the Kodak ColorPlus.

    My local Sainsbury has its film on offer. From memory, Superia 400 24exp was down to £2.50 and 36exp was maybe £2.75. Best of all, Gold 400 3 packs were just over £4. Some mail order places may better those prices but if you're there anyway buying your sausages you pick up a roll or two.

    Thanks for the heads-up! The Superia isn't particularly cheap, but the Gold 400 sure is. Are they short dated?
