YEP Says: Closure of Leeds casino is a blow

The area around the Merrion Centre has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years, down in large part due to the massive effect that the First Direct Arena has brought to Leeds.

That is why the closure of the Grosvenor Casino on Merrion Way is such a blow for the area.

Whatever your opinion on gambling, the venue was a source of employment for many people whose livelihood is under threat.

Let us hope that those effected find a swift new source of income and that the building finds a new purpose very soon so that the area can continue to flourish.
