Troubled bingo operator Buzz Bingo has announced the permanent closure of the popular Glenrothes branch of Buzz Bingo in Fife.
Buzz Bingo which recently saw all of its bingo clubs purchased for a nominal fee, announced via social media that the Glenrothes bingo hall will not reopen its doors once the lockdown in Scotland ends in May.
In a statement posted on social media, Buzz Bingo said:
“It’s with a heavy heart we announce that Buzz Bingo Glenrothes will not be reopening and is closing permanently.”
“The decision to close was not our choice and despite our best efforts, it was ultimately out of our control.”
“We’re devastated to bring you this news as we know this will be a difficult time for our community and our amazing Glenrothes team.”Our nearest Buzz Bingo club is Buzz Bingo Dundee and the lovely team there will be delighted to welcome you when they’re able to reopen.
“Brilliant teams at Buzz Bingo Meadowbank and Buzz Bingo Falkirk are nearby too. We hope that you will continue to play with us online at buzzbingo.com.”
“We’d like to thank all our customers and colleagues for their ongoing support and for making our community amazing.”
The closure of yet another Scottish bingo hall comes amidst a Save Scottish Bingo campaign. The campaign highlighted the plight of bingo halls in Scotland, most of which have been open for only two months out of the last twelve.
