"i had my time at jessups in 2005"

There's a chain of camera shops called Jessops.

"if i was shop manager in high street i would offer incentives,on managers discretion"

Well you would if you could still make a profit on your overheads, otherwise you would soon bankrupt your business. Do you not understand anything about how retail businesses work? You can safely assume that if a High street shop could match online prices and survive, it would presumably be doing so. Some businesses with superior purchasing power can indeed do that, but they are few and far between, for the reasons I've already mentioned.

One day many of the high street shops will disappear and is already happening.
