Wine and spirits store lined up for former Playtrium site
A wine and spirits tasting and retail store is to open in Smith’s on the former site of a children’s indoor recreational facility.
The Department of Planning has approved a change-of-use application for the building at 8 South Road, just east of Collector’s Hill that formerly housed The Playtrium.
The planning application was submitted by John Tomlinson, president and chief executive officer of BGA Wholesale Distributors, who declined to comment.
The children’s facility, which opened in 2015, closed its doors for good last August after its owners decided that new Covid-19 health regulations made it unfeasible to continue.
The approval for change-of-use is effective until March 10, 2023.
