Jessops and Excellence. Not two words you usually hear in the same sentence. Went to the New Oxford Street (flagship) store a few weeks ago on the off chance they might have a leather camera strap. They guy that served me seemed a little confused and led me to a wall of batteries and pointed vaguely at some cases. He was completely clueless. From that day forth I decreed I'll never set foot in a Jessops again.

Having pre-ordered with large deposit on 3 March 2012 I am still waiting for an in store Panasonic camera TZ 30 to become available. It is now 13 April still no stock I am told, its probably technical. I note the camera is available for purchase on line for collection in store within 30 minutes.

What is the problem?
