Proudly trading in Downham Market since 1990

Welcome to Mr Bee's Fotostop

Mr Bee’s, Fotostop first opened on the high street in Downham Market in 1990. The shop was named after founder and owner Mr (Tony) Bridger. 
Engineer and corporal in the RAF, and long-term member of the Downham round table, Mr.Bee originally opened the shop as a popular emporium of gifts, fancy goods, fireworks, toys and homewares, including an extensive selection of picture frames.

The popularity of the picture frames presented an obvious business opportunity, and the picture framing soon became a full range of photographic developing and printing services.

With investment in the latest specialist photographic equipment and a shop layout change, Mr. Bee’s evolved into Fotostop, and really came into its own. The chain expanded to 5 stores at one point, positioned in Hadley, Gorleston, Potter Highham, Swaffham and Downham Market. However, business development has resulted in the return to just one shop – the best shop, Fotostop.
