Woe for customers as Waterlooville supermarket store shuts '“Â but doesn't put up posters
A CHAIN has closed its branch inside a popular supermarket.
The photographic retailer Jessops confirmed it has taken the '˜difficult' decision to close its Waterlooville store at Sainsbury's in Hambeldon Road.Â
The firm said because of its '˜good relationship' with its customers the closure was communicated face-to-face throughout September, but no posters were put up in-store.
A spokesperson said: '˜We are continually reviewing the performance of our Jessops store estate. Â
'˜Whilst we continue to open stores where market conditions allow, unfortunately it is also necessary to close those stores where the local market conditions are no longer sufficient to support a Jessops store.
'˜For this reason, after careful review we have taken the difficult decision to close our Waterlooville store. Â
'˜We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their support over the years.'
