| p.1 #17 · UK members - Jessops in administration |
Here in India, the small local stores are flourishing. In the Fort Area of South Mumbai, there are dozens of small ( some tiny) camera stores that will get me pretty much anything I want, instantly, for cheaper than I can buy online. The stuff is legit with full warranties and what is more I have found the guys in the shops ( often the owners) are incredibly knowledgable. To the extent that I have been advised not to buy something ( which is on the shelf) because of known compatibility or performance issues. These guys pack more stock, service and knowledge than your average Jessops into an area the size of a broom cupboard and will bend over backwards to assist. Heck I can phone them up and they'll deliver to me 50 Km away same day COD for no extra charge. Sad for the Jessops employees but honestly, I used the Brighton branch a few times and was stunned at the truly pathetic levels of knowledge of the staff, the terrible 'couldn't care less' service and the fact that the stuff I wanted was rarely in stock, 'we can order it for you' doesn't cut it I'm afraid. I'm amazed that they lasted so long tbh.
