Bri­tish Bazaar seeks pro­tec­tion from cred­i­tors

The Packet (Clarenville) - - Sports -

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.
