Hmmmmmmm.  It says profit on accessories is 30%.  That could be lenses (though I doubt it) but is much more likely to be cases and filters.

As for "on hard-copy photos and posters it is around 70pc" - maybe on posters.  Jessops print in store on Oxford Street and sell on convenience.  Maybe they charge 20 quid for a poster or a mug.  But most stores do digital prints for 5p.  If there was 70% profit on them then somebody would do them for 4p and somebody else would do 30 for a quid.  It's an extremely competitive and price sensitive market.

Don't know if it's been said on here but, apparently they are not, an employee on my course got told they are not, although they prob tell them that anyway. Her store is apparently getting bonuses anyway lol
