Notts landing for Wex’s retail dynasty
Posted on Jul 25, 2023
It’s evidently not all doom and gloom in photo retail, as Wex Photo Video announced its 14th store on Carrington Street in Nottingham’s city centre – its second opening of the year so far.
The latest store is part of Wex’s strategy to extend its experience to a wider customer base. A ‘high-tech play table’ will feature offerings from leading brands including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Manfrotto and DJI. Customers will also be able to see such kit in action, with live events and demonstrations hosted in a new seminar zone. Additional services include equipment repair, sensor cleaning and camera set-up, while a trade-in service promises to be ‘fair and transparent’.
As the new store is within walking distance of the city’s two universities, special student discounts are being offered, reducing the cost of certain brands by 10%. The in-store seminar zone may also be hired for free. Additional in-store and free online events for students are being planned.
Wex’s CEO Louis Wahl comments: “By continuing to invest in the high street, our ambition is that our physical presence will inspire and empower photographers and videographers of all levels.”
