Employees got zero notice, they are scheduled to be told this afternoon. Reading an article on the internet is a great way to find out you are losing your job....

I am a league bowler at Eastbrook (Also AMF Center). Make you wonder what they are going to do with their long standing bowling league. I feel sorry for the employees. But I know that Eastbrook can use some good wait staff. Maybe some will be able to come on board over there.

That's three strikes in a row for Michigan, were either on a winning streak or losing streak. Too bad, bowling use to be a popular sport. Are they going to be destroyed or available for sale, will someone keep them as a bowling establishments sure hope so.

I know that the Comet Bowling Center has several other businesses in the bldg. They have Mike Marks Pro Shop and a Health Club. My guess is they will either gut it or re-open it. It is a pretty rough neighborhood. There were a lot of shootings and gang issues there. Unless the other businesses move I don't see how they can destroy the building. The health club is in the basement of the bowling alley.
