I sincerely hope Mr Jones can make a success of Jessops without having the millstone of 180 odd stores to pay rent and council tax on expensive town centre real estate, heating lighting and knowledgeable staff to pay, he only needs pickers and packers now because they're only what we used to call in the trade "selling boxes now, still I can't feel sorry for the 2,000 people who have lost their jobs. I truly believe that notwithstanding "the digital revolution" the companys downward slide started when Allan Jessop and the Jessop family sold the company and accountants, professional managers, and men in grey suits who understood and cared little or nothing about photography only balance sheets took over.
