£3m investment in Club 3000 Kilmarnock will take the number of Scottish clubs to seven and bring 40 jobs to the local economy.
Family run Club 3000, which recently brought its brand of bingo glamour to Wigan, has confirmed that it will be making a £3m investment in a new club in Kilmarnock, creating an estimated 40 new jobs in the process. The town-centre project is on the site of the former Buzz Bingo hall which shut its doors nearly 12-months ago due to the Covid pandemic.
Described by local media source Ayrshire Live as a ‘glitzy new bingo hall’ it will become the seventh Club 3000 venue in Scotland. Founded in 2006 by Brian Fraser, the company has expanded from just a single venue to now having 21 sites across England, Scotland and Wales. Mr Fraser confirmed: “We are delighted to extend our portfolio of clubs to 22 and bring the Club 3000 brand to Kilmarnock. We already have six clubs in Scotland including our flagship club in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire. This is a great venue and community, and we are looking forward to offer customers a fabulous bingo experience in a first-class, modern, and secure environment.”
Adding: “We promise something special to look forward to – both for regular bingo lovers and new customers. We acquired the building last month and will be refurbishing it to the highest standards and hope to be open by Christmas 2021.”
With a stated vision to provide luxury venues offering the highest prize money at the lowest cost, Club 3000’s strategy is to invest in the interiors creating innovative designs and layout, in order to provide customers with a first-class and contemporary bingo experience.
The country’s third largest bingo operator, Club 3000 employs 700 staff across the UK and remains an independent family-run business.
