Five jobs go as Jessops shop shuts
Saturday 12th January 2013, 11:00AM GMT.
GUERNSEY’S Jessops shop shut yesterday with the loss of five jobs after the administrators announced that all the company’s branches were being closed.
The photography business went into administration on Wednesday, although the shops continued trading.
But at 4.25pm yesterday administrator PwC announced that all shops would close at the end of business.
Joint administrator Rob Hunt said they had reviewed the position of the business and held discussions with suppliers.
‘It is apparent that we cannot continue to trade and, as a result, we have had to make the difficult decision to begin the closure of all 187 Jessops stores at the close of business today [Friday],’ he said.
