Home to some great PBA stops over the past several decades, it is no surprise that the property is for sale.  Their financial troubles are well known throughout the Detroit bowling community.

$650K is pretty cheap for a 48-lane center, unless the place is totally trashed.  The 50-lane Clover Lanes here in town sold for at least $7 million, and that doesn't include the capital equipment that's being removed and used elsewhere.

I hope the new owners know they need a new roof, a new furnace and a new air conditioner.  Oh and a new parking lot.  The lane machines are not worth anything.  Doubt they can get any body to buy the old lanes. 
The city of Taylor will no longer get any tax money for the property. 
Once one of the original owners died and the other bought out their family the place was doomed.  Had the other family took over the place would probably still be doing fine. This from a bowler who moved a league there the 1st year it opened in 1975-or 76.  Great memories.
