Some of you may remember the articles about Arcade Infinity closing down and staying open that have been put up the past couple of months. Well, it seems as if they will be shuttoing down for sure this time. The owner was denied for a new business license and will be forced to closed down Saturday, February 26th, 2011.
This was sent out via AI Facebook group:
Last night I made a twitter post stating that I had heard from Ken Tao, owner of AI, that they were being forced to close their doors (again). This time it’s permanent. L.A. County denied the application for a business license extension that was requested by the owners of Diamond Plaza. The County wants the Tao brothers to close shop, pay for a new license, and wait for all of the hearings and city counsel votes in order to stay open (this could take up to 8 months). Ken stated that it wasn’t the money that was the problem this time, it’s how long AI would have to remained closed while waiting for the final word, which would have likely been “no” anyways. The arcade is closing it’s doors on February 26th, 2011.
