Jobs at risk as Jessops photographic shops go into administration
JOBS in Hampshire could be under threat after a camera retailer chain went into administration today.
Around 2,000 jobs at Jessops are said to be under threat.
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has been appointed to the group, which is Britain's only specialist nationwide camera retailer, with nearly 200 stores.
Jessops, which has its headquarters in Leicester, has suffered in recent years from online competition and the boom in camera phones, which has hit demand for digital cameras.
