Below is the statement which appears on Napoleons website
On Sunday 14th January 2018, Napoleons Casino & Restaurant on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield closed after 42 years in business . The intention is to re-site the current license to the Napoleons Owlerton, Sheffield operation and invest heavily in developments in the site, with the introduction of a 500-seater purpose built Banqueting Suite.
In addition to this, The A&S Leisure Group have acquired a fantastic site in a prime location in Manchester, where a new Napoleons Casino, Bar & Restaurant will open, with build work starting towards the end of the year.
With four other Napoleons Casinos & Restaurants in Yorkshire, and one in Leicester Square, plus Owlerton Greyhound Stadium and the two new upcoming operations which will create 200 jobs, there will be job opportunities across the board for the employees of Ecclesall Road.
Dave Allen, Chairman of The A&S Leisure Group, commented: “After 42 years at Ecclesall Road it is a sad day, but time moves on and Ecclesall Road is not what it used to be. We’d like to thank everyone for their patronage over the years and do hope people will continue to enjoy the Napoleons experience at Napoleons Owlerton in Sheffield.
“We are also sorry to hear that Dave Baldwin is bringing his era to an end this year, when Baldwin’s Banqueting Suite will close in July. Over the years we have always seen a good deal of Baldwins’ business ending up in Napoleons and unfortunately that will no longer be the case.
“We must now look forward to the future and the exciting plans we have in place for the Owlerton and Manchester sites.”
