“Offering a good mix of both modern and classic machines, having ‘something for everyone’.”
The listing states the “vast majority” of the site is dedicated to gaming and amusement machines and circulation space, with toilets, stores and offices to the rear.
“Rear service road access for collections and deliveries, with power roller shutters to the front,” noted the agency, adding “the business is operated by four full time staff.”
“We are advised that the landlords are willing to grant a 21 year lease at a rent of circa £38,400pa.”
The arcade operates from 10am until midnight seven days a week during the summer season, and is open all year round, including Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during the winter months.
