Rochdale town centre’s Mecca Bingo club has just announced that it will be closing in on 4th July 2022 after serving the community for 20 years. The venue, which is situated on Smith Street, has confirmed that its current lease is due to end in September and Rank Group has made the decision not to extend it. The council is understandably disappointed, although its current regeneration plans for the town centre mean that it will explore suitable options for future uses of the site.
Mecca Bingo is also consulting with the club’s employees in the hopes of finding them alternative roles. The bingo hall is planning to go out with a bang and is currently coming up with ways to “make the next five weeks memorable” for its “incredible customers”.
