Klick store closure


Recommended Posts

Whilst in Leeds this week doing a bit of Xmas shopping I noticed Klick's city centre store has just closed. This was a very busy store in its heyday. It had a number of minilabs spread over two levels with separate areas for bringing in work and collection. Recently it had a number of kiosks fitted.

So, another triumph for low margins! Can't wait for even more closures ;)

Am new here but just had to reply ..!  I used to work for Klick for over 15 yrs and in march this yr my shop was one of the 200 that closed.

    Must admit its the strangest christmas i've had, what with no angry customers, no lost or late photos, no marks or dusty prints and the distinct lack of nagging from directors is really quite fantastic for me and my staff!!!    

  I admit it is quieter - but in a town where the only competition  is boots, people here were really quite at a loss when klick closed and were holding our own.  So in true klick style, on my leaving, I took my staff, contacts, engineers and
