Seattle Gameworks closing?!?!

I was just listening to a certain podcast (Screwattack Sidescrollers) and they mentioned that their local Gameworks (Texas area) is closing :(

Can anyone from Seattle confirm that their Gameworks is closing there? If so, what day is the last day?

I have remembered walking into Gameworks for the very first time last year. It was defiantly one of the highlights as the size and the amount of games in the centre as well as the people I've met there. It was a really good place to chill as a tourist or a local.

So again is Gameworks Seattle planning to close down?

    I don't think the two are necessarily connected.

    I live in a different country than all of the Gameworks locations. I've thought someone in the Seattle area can do a favor and call them to find out.

    Nope Seattle is fine.

    SEGA Press release
    March 29, 2010 p.m.

    blah blah blah blah

    The restructuring will result in the closing of seven GameWorks
    locations: Long Beach, CA; Columbus, OH; Detroit, MI; Minneapolis, MN;
    Indianapolis, IN; Tampa, FL; and Miami, FL. The company has introduced
    potential new tenants to mall ownership, in hopes that some locations
    may be reopened in the future. Eight other GameWorks locations, plus
    World Sports Grille in Tucson, AZ, will remain open and become the focus
    of renewed effort going forward. Those locations are Seattle, WA;
    Ontario, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Ft. Lauderdale, FL; Tempe, AZ; Schaumburg,
    IL; Cincinnati, OH; and Dallas, TX.

    That place is frequently really busy, they have 2 bars, and they never spend money on game maintenance. You'd have to be quite the [silly goose] to run out of money with a system like that!

    Since this isn't really PAX-related, and the question at hand has been answered, I'm closing this thread.
