Five jobs lost in a flash as Jessops in Enfield Town Church Street closes
Five people have lost their jobs as another familiar high street shop has fallen into administration.
Camera store Jessops in Enfield Town closed its doors for the final time on Friday due to declining profits.
Over the coming days, some staff will be selected to help clear out the premises in Church Street.
The shop is one of 192 to close in the UK, with up to 2,000 jobs at risk.
Edward Williams, Rob Hunt and Matthew Hammond of Price Waterhouse Cooper were appointed joint administrators of The Jessop Group Limited on Wednesday.
Despite a £239million turnover last year, revenue from the camera marketplace has recently seen a significant decline and forecasts for 2013 suggested the pattern would continue.
At the moment, the shops are not able to accept gift vouchers or returned goods.
The chain was set up by Frank Jessop in Leicester in 1935.
