UK Camera Chain Jessops Will Retain an Online PresenceNot long ago we had to report the sad news that another massive camera chain was shutting down. As it turns out, the company will be sticking around, if in a limited form. Jessops will live online from now on, thanks to a recent sale to a group of investors that include entrepreneur and Dragon's Den star Peter Jones.
While it's nice that the brand will live on, the purchasers say that they have no intent to reopen any physical stores. There's also been no information yet on some of the things that Jessops denied customers when they shut down, including purchased equipment and gift cards. If the new Jessops holds to the promises made by the old one, they could be making some very fast friends.
