Following latest research revealing 60 per cent of Brits have invested in photography equipment over the past year, Wex continues to grow their presence on the high street – ensuring all customers can benefit from in-person customer service and physical demo spaces.
The 2,019 square foot space in the historic city houses some history of its own. Once a Beer House known as the ‘Highland Piper’ some 150 years ago, the building will now feature a comprehensive selection of products displayed across a hi-tech play-table. Customers can browse popular photo and video categories such as mirrorless cameras and lenses, camera accessories, camcorders, studio accessories, and harder-to-find categories such as astronomy, optics and audio devices. As ever, the new equipment will be accompanied by an array of used items, available with a 12-month warranty.
Louis Wahl, Chief Executive Officer at Wex Photo Video, commented: “Our newest store will bring the Wex Promise to the heart of Cambridge; the largest range of imaging products presented with independent, expert advice. More than ever, people are indulging their creative side through serious photography. We’re really excited to open a new space where Wex colleagues can generously share their experience with enthusiasts and professionals alike.”
