arken graphic display helps Gala Bingo to give new clubs a winning look

Bingo players in the North East have had their ‘eyes up’ after Gala Bingo, the UK’s leading bingo operator, gave two recently acquired clubs an inviting fresh look – with a little help from arken.

The popular bingo clubs in Middlesbrough and South Shields were given a facelift after Gala Bingo completed their purchase from the Noble organisation. To add the all-important finishing touches to the refurbishment programme, arken supplied a range of display materials including wall and hanging poster frames, to create a truly winning environment for bingo players.

“We were delighted to welcome the Middlesbrough and South Shields sites to the Gala Bingo family. But there was still plenty of work to do. Our priority was to integrate both clubs into the Gala Bingo brand, and ensure that those changes happened as smoothly as possible,” said Gala Bingo spokesperson.

arken have been a preferred supplier to Gala Coral Group for a number of years, supplying lightboxes, poster frames, forecourt signs and literature dispensers to both its bingo and casino venues. “arken has become the first port of call for Gala Bingo Club managers when they need promotional display material. Our combination of quality, outstanding customer service and realistic pricing mean that they can always bet on us to deliver when it matters most,” said Paul Smart.

Gala Bingo has recently embarked on an extensive refurbishment and investment programme to create exciting venues with market leading products, which will enable it to continue to grow its share of the UK gaming market. The bingo operator boasts over 700,000 active members who make more than 3 million visits each year to its clubs across the UK.
