To all of our Guests, Employees and Family.
The last 19 months have been understandably hard times. We have exhausted grants, loans and other help during this time to keep our dream alive.
Today is one of the hardest days in our lifetimes. Since March 16th 2020, I personally have gone through many hardships. Having to close my business to the virus then not being able to open it when the bowling industry opened up because of a collapse in my roof to losing friends to Covid and the bottom fell out when I lost my Mom to Covid. Since March of 2020 every day I fought with insurance companies about the damage to the bowling center and we have learned the hard way that it takes a very long time to get an insurance company to pay.
Nobody hurts more than my family that we are not open for a business that we love. My wife and I are blessed to have wonderful employees that come every day to share our dream and they are very special to us and It hurts to know We can’t be open for them.
I have been bowling since my Dad took me when I was 5 years old and I made a dream of mine for my family come true when I was able to own my own center. Bowling has been in my family since the 40’s and I’m so happy to bring bowling to my Family and the Families of Patchogue and beyond.
My two daughters love the sport and I’m so glad they had the opportunity to bowl in school and in tournaments and now In college. They met so many friends and special people in their lives and We are so proud of them.
That is why today is so hard to announce that Bowl Long Island will be closing it’s doors forever. This is something that came out of nowhere. My landlords have decided to sell the property. We are shocked and as a family we didn’t have the money to buy the property.
So when I thought these times couldn’t get worse they did. We as a family will have to move on and we will miss all of you guys. Not seeing everyone every day will be the hardest and today is not only a sad day for us but also a sad day for bowling as another center is closing permanently. I watched Patchogue’s development during my 13 years here and that same development has now come to knock on our door. We will miss the Patchogue community so much. But what we will miss the most is the special bonds not only that we made, but the ones my employees made with you guys. This really is terrible and it’s really hard to put into words how hard it is.
Our hearts are broken and will cherish all the friendships and the memories at Bowl Long Island that we have had with all of you.
