THE owners of Barry's Amusements in Portrush have realeased a statement stating their intention to re-market the business for sale.
The statement says: “Since October 2019, the Trufelli family has sought to sell Barry’s Amusements as a going concern.
"This has been an intensive process which has been hindered by the Covid pandemic and the resulting economic conditions.
"As we return to a more favourable economic environment, our intention is to re-market the business for sale.
"Whilst our hope is that we will be able to sell the business as a going concern, we recognise that it may not be possible to find a suitable purchaser.
"As a result, we have appointed Savills and Philip Tweedie & Company to market the site as both a going concern and a development opportunity.
"Barry’s continues to remain closed in line with Covid restrictions and will not re-open until the sale process has concluded.
"There will be no further comment from the Trufelli family.”
