Of the £16.3m owed by Jessops to Canon £9.3m was held in stock, which should be returned to Canon.
I've only been to one Jessops store in my entire life ... it was in Glasgow during my vacation to UK in 2010 ... after having read a lot about Jessops, I was expecting a really nice big store with lots of inventory but when I went to the store, I was surprised to see all entry level cameras, lenses, accessories and the store too was kinda small ... I suppose bigger stores in London, Edinburgh probably had better inventory ... but it is sad when big chains like that collapse, you can't help but feel bad for them, especially when they provided employment to so many people. Hope all the Jessop staff who got laid off get better offers elsewhere.
