speaking as a newspaper reporter, it sounds to me as if you are talking to 
"the guys at the shop who heard it from someone else who heard it from 
else" who, most likely, heard it from the same people the first guy did.

In these situations rumors are rampant -- it is best to not waste time 
talking to people in individual shops and go straight to the company, which 
the news 
items seem to have done.

Do you really think the photo industry can let go a third of the market 
in the world? Ilford's production will be taken up, probably by someone who 
buys it at a garage sale price and doesn't have the debt that ilford does 
Inthe long run this will be good for everyone.
