    I imagine because Jessops had been on the brink in 2009 their major suppliers had taken precautions to ensure they weren't at risk.

    That seems very likely, and presumably prevented the administrators from carrying out reduced price sales.

    What Stock???? I went past the branch closest to me just before Christmas and in all the display cabinets - there are/were 12 in total. There were only 6 cheap end compact digital and one low end Canon SLR. The shelf with papers was almost empty as the vacant expressions of the 3 members of staff.

    For thhe last couple of years, instead of actual stock in the window displays, our store has had posters showing the item and the price.

    Looks like HMV are set to disappear from the UK's High Streets too.

    Jacobs went last year....

    The London Camera Exchange is hanging in there, I believe? About 30 shops at least?
    Calumet has half a dozen branches.
    Mail order there is Silverprint and AG photographic.
    There are a few more trading on Amazon and eBay, too.
    And don't forget Boots... No darkroom supplies of course, but they still sells Fuji and Ilford film in most branches.
