JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – While Latitude 360 has closed, its inventory will be auctioned off this weekend. 

The company's debtors will be holding a two-day auction June 25-26.

Items up for bid on Saturday will include bowling balls, bowling shoes, more than 30 flat screen TVS and commercial kitchen supplies. Arcade games will be auctioned off on Sunday.

The business unexpectedly closed its doors in January after it was evicted from its location across from the Avenues Mall on Philips Highway. The landlord said the company owed nearly $3 million in back rent.

The State Attorney’s Office then opened an investigation into the bounced paychecks the owner of Latitude 360 wrote to employees before the entertainment center closed.

The employees accused the now shut-down entertainment company and its founder and CEO, Brent Brown, of failing to pay their wages.
