Brett says that Christchurch Casino’s employees and building has come through the event well and has reopened for business:
“Throughout our period of closure, our primary concern has been for staff and their families. On all accounts we are safe and well, and we will continue to provide support where ever we can”.
“Aside of minor superficial damage to the Casino building itself, we have come through strongly. Our structural report is clear and we have invested in a water purifier to ensure water safety across our services. We are back in operation and will be making some minor cosmetic repairs where needed”.
