The casino land Calais encounter difficult times, and leave the leader fairly helpless to lower gross gaming by 15.5% over one year only. Apart from lower games, casino Calais is also a decline in its British customers by 10% last year.
Local leaders hope to halt these declines. Christophe Saint-Georges, deputy director of the company’s Le Touquet, the hotel manager for Partouche said that like any business they face this crisis bitter but mostly hope this situation changes.
With identity checks since 2007 and the smoking ban, this causes a problem doing great harm to many casinos. When the turnover of this casino, we note that since the record year of 2005 revenues decline. In 2008, this institution is doing a turnover of over 9.32 million euros. And this year, revenues amounted to 7.88 million. A decrease of 15.5% compared to 2008, and an impressive reduction of 37% since 2005.
When negotiating the renewal of the concession, Christopher St. George informed the mayor that there will be no time for the dismissal procedure, hoping the same for the future. The deputy director of the casino and the 64 employees are legitimately embarrassed and are obliged to adjust at the margins.
Once the state and the municipality have made their removal, the turnover reached 4.4 ME casino. A figure still lower compared to 2008 when revenues amounted to 4.8 ME.
Even if the margin remains important, the casino must continue to invest to correct these decreases. This group wants to attract new customers, why it is willing to sponsor cultural events. The casino has also renovated its lobby.
Finally Eric Partouche, technical advisor to the CEO, Yves Partouche has realized that he was open to partnerships of city and associations, while leading a lively trade policy.
