I never saw the blight or harm in the business or it could have been a business with more regulation.

About everyone I saw was occupied previous empty retail spots, located in areas like around adult book stores and sometimes in them.

It loss of taxes and fees to fill the cities coffers. For instance Fayetteville will loose $350,000
Some cities in this state charge the buisness $2,500 for the business and around @2,500 per machine.

It individual responsibility if they want to spend there money on sweep takes, lottery, adult book store or have a tarot reading.

There is no winners in extra business contributing to the city growth closing.

I hope they put in a nail salon, or hair salon, dry cleaners.
Probably end up putting in a tattoo parlor. LOL.

The people that can least afford to lose money are typically the ones that frequent these places. Sadly, their families are the ones that are most affected by the losses.

Glad to see them closed and hope they don't find a way to re-open.
