Betting office chain BetSid has continued its growth by adding another two licenced premises to its portfolio.
The purchase of Betabet in Chorley will complete on Monday.
BetSid will be trading from the two Chorley licensed betting offices on the same date with renovations to its Market Street and Moor Road premises set for completion in early 2015.
The takeover secures the jobs of seven Betabet employees and provides employment opportunities in the local area.
BetSid has experienced rapid expansion since it began trading in June 2013.
It has three premises in Lancashire already and is the exclusive betting partner of Preston North End FC.
Paul Kirkby, operations manager for BetSid, said: “There was real opportunity for the expansion of BetSid into Chorley – the firm had an established presence on the high street and secondary premises in the town.”
