Jessops to reopen in Bromley

Jessops has confirmed plans to open a store in Bromley, south-east London under the chain’s new boss Peter Jones.

Details such as when the shop will open have not yet been revealed as negotiations continue.

A spokesperson for Jessops Europe today told Amateur Photographer that the store will be based on Bromley High Street and is expected to open ‘in the not too distant future'.

Eight staff reportedly lost their jobs when the Bromley store shut down in January.

At the time, a spokesman for West Wickham Photographic Society told the Bromley Times: ‘It's a sad day because there aren't a lot of photography shops now.'

Peter Jones has so far reopened 27 Jessops stores - the first being the outlet in Oxford Street, London which was relaunched at the end of March.

Jessops closed all 187 of its stores, under former owners, on 11 January after collapsing into administration. Around 1,500 staff lost their jobs.
