Deathwatch: RIP Jessops
Word is reaching us that the entire 187-strong chain of Jessops stores will close at the end of today, which should mean the loss of around 2,000 jobs across the country.
The company went into administration earlier in the week and was believed to owe HSBC £30 million. More news as we get it...
UPDATE: The 187 stores will begin closing FROM today. The administrator PwC has said that the retailer can no longer trade without supplier support.
