    Thats a fair comment. I`m not going to throw mud at sinister even though he has tried to rattle my cage. You talk sense.

    No I am not giving anyone more stick than they deserve. Just that I beleive that this person has a hidden agenda. If they were a bit more honest and up front then, I would be open.

    Hidden Agenda ? Honest and up front ? Are you Mystic Meg ?

    Mystic Meg, No. But some of your questions, given your background give rise to a little scepticism.

    Lets hope they don't do a Dixons and start selling second hand kit as new. Who said that - it wasn't me officer! Slander is a terrible thing!

    I go to two different stores of Jessops - Guildford which is so busy and seem to have got rid of their real experts that they had (there was an Australian girl in there that really new her stuff and was quite attractive too!), and I also visit Hedge End near Southampton who have kept their knowledgable team and arew very helpful. Both I have to say are very freindly and curtious but it just depends on how indepth you want to go. Good stores and bad stores but always better than Curries and Dixons on a Saturday!

    Jessops have trouble keeping their good staff these days. I suppose it's typical of the retail trade - expect a lot from the staff but don't pay them much.

    Did anyone see the artical in this weeks AP. Jessops to move into Europe. What have the Europians done to deserve this. At least they are not taking any staff from the UK.

    I'm sure Nick will have something to say about them competing with the good stores in France.

    Worse - they plan to do the expansion in the same way as their recent one in the UK; not by opening new stores, but by buying out the competition. /img/wwwthreads/frown.gif

    Maybe they should be renamed Jixons!

    Buying up the competition in the UK simply restricted our choice and left us with an organisation with a high staff turnover and concentrating on box-shifting of popular models to the general public at the expense of catering for the keen amateur.

    Maybe they ought to start a call centre...

    Don't give them any ideas. Having just bought forward my first Cardiac Arrest by a good few years talking to Sky TV, in Scotland, Bombay, etc. The last thing I need is another Call Centre to deal with <img src="/img/wwwthreads/frown.gif">

    My retort to this news is, it's a pity it isn't Dixons! There's a company that deserves it's come-uppance at long last for selling in the 60's those dreadful Kowa 35mm cameras that used to pack up days after the guarantee finished, and no self-respecting camera repair firm would touch with a 2 mile-long bargepole!

    <i>Kowa 35mm cameras </i>
    i thpught kowa were a top notch manufacturer, they make some of the best (and most expensive!) scopes around!
    <img src="http://www.kowascope.com/pro/tsn820m.gif">
    they also make these things!

    <b>Ideal for tourist sights. Differing from the conventional coin-operated observation binoculars which allow only one person at a time to look through the binoculars, the Vista View enables a couple or a family to view simultaneously</b>

    Oh and i agree about dixons!<img src="/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif">
