Paddy Power, the bookmaker, known for its heavy banter and strong PR campaigns are to launch a new branch on South Methven Street.
The Irish bookmaker is believed to be hiring around ten members of staff along with management roles. The branch is to be located on South Methven Street yards from William Hill and Ladbrokes.
It was confirmed this week after several job postings were found on Job Listing websites such as Indeed.co.uk — with around six betting shops in Perth, Perth & Kinross Council face criticism after allowing Perth City down its status. Not just Paddy Power, another Cafe has recently been opened on the same street.
Pam Glennie said: “I think it’s a shame Perth seems to attract so many bookies. They wouldn’t be opening so many if they didn’t make money so I guess there must be a lot of gambling addicts in Perth.”
Another user said: “Still more evidence of the slow but inexorable decline of Perth”
