Customers and former employees of the failed camera chain Jessops have taken to Twitter to lament the closure of the retailer:
Can't believe #Jessops is to close.. Was a good place to work.. My first retail job when I was 16.. Feel sorry for friends losing jobs..
Goodbye to #Jessops I understand why trading is tricky with mobile phone cameras and online stores, but they've served me well each time
Very sad about #Jessops closure tonight. They have looked after me well over the years, always has great customer service. Such a shame.
Some 2000 jobs have been put at risk as camera chain Jessops became the first retail casualty of 2013, with store closures "inevitable".
Jessops looks set to become the first high street casualty of 2013 as the retailer is understood to be on the brink of administration.
