While in the mall today I happened to pass by this arcade that had a bunch of signs telling people how arcades have been around so long and that this business was still here to cater to fans. It definitely wasn’t busy inside which made me wonder if the profits were very minimal as I know mall leasing rates can get very expensive.
It felt more like a charitable organization in many ways. And the interesting thing too was that a lot of people were commenting on how they were spending some money there as they want to see an arcade survive. Again, it felt like a charitable organization. If the business was completely self sufficient then I guess there is no harm. But I’m assuming there is probably a lot of paper work involved still which makes me wonder if the purpose of the business is to make money then whether or not it makes more sense to try something else.
