The popular gaming arcade in Goulburn is set to reopen this weekend.
Back To The Arcade was one of the businesses forced to shut the doors due to COVID-19.
Excited about reopening, owner Greg Appleton is looking forward to seeing familiar faces again.
"We are optimistic as lots of people have been contacting us to enquire about our opening date. We look forward to seeing our regular faces again," Mr Appleton said.
"During the difficult shutdown period, we received assistance from the state government and that helped us immensely.
"I am grateful to the community for their support. There are some new games that we have added that people can come and enjoy."

Goulburn local Greg Appleton, who has a passion for gaming and saw a hole in the market, started the classic old-style video gaming arcade in June 2019.
He had been collecting games for many years and that led to the idea of opening Back To The Arcade.
With around 35 gaming machines, it soon became popular among locals.
They have a huge collection of games including Lethal Weapon, Mario 2s, Ghost Squad, and Operation Ghost.
There are plans to relocate the arcade to a bigger premise in town and add new features like mini-bowling, games etc.
"Things are in progress presently. We have plans to shut down this venue and reopen at a new one with new features and games," he said.
"Come and enjoy the new games that we have put in the arcade. That way, we can survive the extra few weeks between now and reopening again at the new place," he said.
