Michigan Bowling Alley Owner Posts Obituary for the Business on Facebook
One of my favorite things to do growing up was to go bowling with friends at a neighborhood bowling alley. We all got attached to it like we did the local ice cream shop and local store and restaurant. When a place closes we love so dear and close, it's a loss for all of us in the neighborhood. With the pandemic, we are losing so many great businesses and it is breaking hearts. There are some in every town and city right now.
Here's one from Westland, Michigan. According to fox47news.com,
Support is pouring in for a bowling alley in Westland that was forced to close as part of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The owner of Vision Lanes wrote an obituary for the alley and posted it on Facebook on Dec. 6. Steven Klein calls the bowling alley his baby.
"She is barely conscious. She is dying slowly. She is watching her loyal staff and caretakers go find other sources of income because she can't provide for her family any longer," he wrote.
This was so clever and got the attention of hundreds of people that want to help. Some even started a Go Fund Me Account. It already raised over $10,000 in donations. We need to do whatever we can to keep local small businesses going until this pandemic is over for good.
