Collapsed camera retailer Jessops axed another 77 jobs yesterday, as “several” parties remain interested in acquiring the Jessops brand and online business, it is understood.
The redundancies follow the 1,370 jobs slashed last week when administrator PwC shuttered its whole portfolio of 187 stores.
It is understood the job cuts have been made at head office which employed around 150 people.
PwC is continuing to seek a buyer for the remainder of the business. It is understood trade and private equity are among those still interested parties.
It is believed administrator PwC is now seeking to sell off property owned by Jessops, appointing property agents Savills, Prime Retail and GCW. One source said there had been a “lot of interest” in some of the stores.
Jessops hit the wall last Wednesday, as revealed by Retail-Week.com, after discussions for additional financial support for the business failed.
