A new Holland Casino location is being built in Utrecht, on Winthontlaan. At the moment there is a fishmonger at number 10 on that street. This family business, which has been renting a building on Winthontlaan for 60 years, must make way for the casino's new location. Today, November 29, 2017, it was announced that the lease contract of Vishandel Gebr. van Zuilen will not be extended.
Fish trade contract canceled
The Vishandel Gebr. van Zuilen was canceled after exactly 60 years. Bert van Zuilen finds it terrible. He has been behind the counter of the fish trade for 47 years. Opening a new fishmonger is not possible at this time. He therefore has to get to work at the other location of the fish trade, in Maarssen. His colleagues were less affected. There is no more work for them if they have to leave Winthontlaan.
Many buildings flat for Holland Casino
Not only the fishmonger has to leave Winthontlaan, the gas station in the street and the ToysXL are also leaving. All buildings are being demolished to allow the construction of a new Holland Casino. The petrol pump filed another lawsuit against the termination of the lease, but the court did not agree. So it is certain: the current companies in the Winthontlaan must make way for the new casino. When this casino will be opened is not yet known.
