And it’s still unable to be profitable by all accounts which says it all. An utterly unwise decision to open in the first place. Would surprise me if the council brought them in promising the world.
I’ve sat on recently a few new site build meetings and proposals with local councils, and it’s amazing how inept some are. They’ll talk about bringing a 5 screen Cinema in the middle of nowhere along with huge restaurant units and give you ridiculous numbers of nearby people. Who live next to an already successful complex of a similar status and you’ll run through figures with them. And they still try and sell it as the next big thing, then offer you discounted rents and such. It’s madness.
