Jessops Camera Store Company Background
Established in the mid 1930's the first Jessops camera store
was part of a small family company founded by Frank Jessop and
then continued by his son Alan focused on offering high quality
cheap cameras. Jessops camera stores are primarily aimed
at photographic enthusiasts offering choice, value and quality
although they also serve professional photographers. In the 1960's
Alan Jessop wanted to sell the Jessops camera shop company and
a management buy out was successful in securing the core principles
and traditions established by the Jessop family continued. At
the time of the management buy out there were 70 Jessop camera
stores throughout the UK but many of these were based in the
Midlands region. A period of rapid expansion grew with the development
of Jessops stores in more diverse geographical locations
throughout the UK and the acquisition of other photographic retailers.
Successive acquisitions and store developments up till the new
century secured their position as the leading UK photographic
specialist retailer. In October 2002 the company was acquired
by ABN AMRO Capital one of Europe's largest banks and with financial
investment have continued to growth in strength within their sector.
There are currently over 250 Jessops stores and the next
few years will mark another period of heavy store development
with a target of around 450 stores planned. In November 2004 shares
in the Jessops company were floated on the London Stock Exchange
enabling both staff and customers to invest in the firms future.
