Arenas in east Regina to go up for sale
First Posted: May 6, 2011 10:22am
The Twin Arenas east of Regina are slated to close at the end of the summer. Joey St. Aubin with Canlan Ice Sports says the opening of the city's six ice surface area, the co-operator's center is to blame. "We, being private, are mandated to be profitable so with six additional ice pads on the marketplace it's going to make it really difficult for us to remain profitable," said St. Aubin. Thirty-five full and part time staff will lose their jobs because of the closure. The last day will be August 31, to accomodate the hockey season. The site will be put up for sale.
