I was deeply saddened by the news of Jessops demise. I am one of a few who relied on them for all my film processing needs, I thought this would mean dipping my toe into the digital market, something I've always been reluctant to do, but due to the ongoing excellence of Jessops for so many years I'd always managed to put it off. I too enjoyed the rapport with the counter staff, and looked forward to my weekly visits. But fear not fellow film users out there, after some investigation and a little arm twisting I've found out that Jessops contracted all such work out of house, mainly a lab in Warrington called BPD Photech, I looked them up and contacted them immediately, they did in fact confirm that a good deal of film processing and print making was done by themselves on behalf of Jessops. Whilst its still extremely sad that a force like Jessops should come to a halt, it's satisfying to know that for film Luddites like myself life goes on.
