‘Virtual reality experience’ plan for former discount store

A former department store in Bradford, UK, could be the site of a new virtual reality experience.
Bradford Council has received an application submitted by Zeeshan Khan to change the use of part of the building from retail to leisure use. If approved, this section of the former store will see shop space converted into an immersive VR experience for customesr.

According to the application, the business would create three full time and two part time jobs. “The building is over one hundred years old… It was proposed by our client to convert the retail unit into a virtual reality experience. Customers will come to the unit to experience virtual reality through different games and activities.”

A decision on the application is expected next month.

According to an article published by www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk  the virtual reality centre would be the latest in a number of leisure businesses in the city centre. Last year Monster Adventure opened an axe throwing and archery centre on Rawson Road. In 2018, Funzy, an inflatable activity centre, opened in the Leisure Exchange, and trampoline park Airobounce opened in the former Mecca Bingo at Bradford Ice Rink.
Planning permission was also recently granted to open a Ninja Warrior activity centre in the Broadway Shopping Centre.
