Jessops, Gloucester
Jessops shop on Kings Walk in Gloucester. Last time I was in Gloucester I recall Jessops were on The Oxebode. Last night Jessops ceased trading, having being placed in the hands of administrators on Wednesday, and the security shutters were pulled down for the last time. On the day this picture was taken staff were in the store, presumably packing away stock.

Passing the shop in October 2013 I note it has reopened.
The Jessops Group Ltd

Jessop's were formed in Leicester in 1935 by Frank Jessop.

They were once the largest specialist supplier of photographic equipment in the UK. At their peak they had 335 stores. In 2007 the company suffered financial crisis, due to increased competition from supermarkets and internet retailers, and had to close some stores.

In January 2013 the company went into administration and its 187 remaining stores across the UK closed on January 11th with the loss of 1,370 jobs.

The brand was bought by entrepreneur Peter Jones and relaunched on 28 March 2013. Up to 30 stores are expected to re-open.
