The former chairman of high-street chain Jacobs has spoken of the u2018great responseu2019 he has received since launching a phone and internet-based business a few days ago.

As reported by AP earlier this year, the Cherished Camera Company specialises in selling second-hand Canon and Nikon DSLRs, lenses and flashguns. It also deals in ‘Leica collectibles’.

Boss Anthony Jacobs says the business is seeking ‘mid-to-top-end’ Canon and Nikon gear, for cash or part-exchange and can be contacted by phone or online.

Until last summer, Anthony Jacobs ran Jacobs Digital, a family-run chain which shut down all 19 of its stores after falling into administration amid the harsh economic climate.
