Issue 475 – Ladbrokes opens in High Street

LADBROKES have opened up a new betting shop in the High Street.

The shop opened on Wednesday 17th November. A Ladbrokes spokesperson said, “Ladbrokes are proud to open a brand new and fully refurbished shop in Westbury where customers can be guaranteed of the best odds daily, with many special offers and promotions available across all markets.”
The opening of Ladbrokes follows the closure of Westbury Racing, with owner Kevin Peters shutting up the Maristow Street bookies after 32 years. Ladbrokes have bought the business and three of the staff have moved to work in the new Ladbrokes shop.
Kevin said, “I want to say a big thanks to Westbury people for all their friendship and support in the last 32 years. I think there is so much community spirit in Westbury compared to other local towns. It’s like a big village. I also wish Ladbrokes every success and I think it is a good thing for Westbury that another big name has come into the town along with their much greater enthusiasm and professionalism.”
