British Bazaar seeks protection from creditors
According to its website, British Bazaar is the breakopen ticket division of British Group, which began as the British Confectionary Company in 1958.
The confectionary company was a wholesaler of candy, notably to customers with ties to the bingo industry. That work eventually led the company to diversify into selling bingo supplies to halls around the province, and the company soon began selling break-open tickets, or Nevadas, to those same halls.
In 1992, the company won the contract to supply breakopen tickets to the Atlantic Lottery Corporation. In 2005, a fire destroyed their facility, but the company then built a new plant in hopes of expanding into commercial printing.
