Excerpt from Calumet (UK) release
Jessops, with many stores and a long heritage had a strong impact in promoting photography to the general public. Although they were a major competitor of Calumet, the fact that they enabled many photographers to handle products within a showroom environment across so many cities in the UK contributed to the incredible increase in the popularity and use of digital SLR cameras in recent years. We of course have the greatest sympathy and respect for the staff, and wish them well in the future. For Jessops’ customers who have been left with unfulfilled orders or issues with manufacturers’ warranty repairs we also sympathise.
With regard to the latter, we would like to offer any Jessops customer who needs to return a product to a manufacturer under warranty for repair the opportunity to use one of our eight nationwide showrooms. The store will handle the dispatch and return along with the necessary paperwork. Please contact your closest store if you wish to discuss taking advantage of this service. We guarantee not to charge any administration fee for this facility.
