This may be a sad attempt to further procrastinate writing my rather imminent final paper, but I thought this might get some interest/response.
As many of you know, the Wetumpka Food World went out of business due to Bruno’s crazy business management and recent bankruptcy–leaving a nice, spacious building completely empty.
I questioned whether or not anything would come to Wetumpka and fill this prime real estate…and even though I am skeptical, I would like to put in my thoughts.
While in high school, my friends and I were constantly on the road to Montgomery in hopes of finding something to do. To be quite honest, Wetumpka has slim pickings
So my suggestion: A bowling alley.
The reason I suggest a bowling alley instead of a movie theater is solely because we can already watch/rent movies, which somewhat quenches that thirst, albeit, not fully.
So why not recruit/pray/hope for a business that could provide entertainment for all ages??
Local churches could use it for youth and young adult events…boy and girl scouts could do end of the year parties here and I am sure kids would love bowling birthday parties. And it would be good for date nights, too! I am sure it would do quite nicely.
It could be fun for all ages…I am channeling the Alabama National Fair commercial right now, just so you know where I am coming from:
“People come from miles around,
From the farms and from the town,
Where excitement will be found,
Its the new Wetumpka Bowling Center!”
So, have I convinced anyone to start their own bowling alley business yet?? Please…?
