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.
