Changes at Bowlaway Lanes are rolling along under new ownership at the operation.
Over the last three weeks the business, 411 Ash St., has undergone a makeover — from cleanup and striping in the parking lot to equipment repairs and upgrades inside.
Along with it has been a spike in league participation, said new owner Rich Naccarato.
A longtime bowler, Naccarato and his wife, Tammy, partnered with another family member to purchase the business and property previously owned by Kay Cannon.
The business has been open under new ownership about three weeks.
Naccarato said numerous changes are in store, but a few have already taken place, including moving the monitors so bowlers can see them better, relocation of the retail pro shop items and painting.
A sports bar is slated to open by spring in the building. Naccarato has also visions of a VIP area that will eventually be available for rentals with bar service and a private pool table.
In the meantime, Bowlaway Lanes has 11 different leagues playing, including seniors mixed and senior ladies, youth leagues and others. Longtime Manager Billy Yaw Jr. is still helping with another three or so employees, in addition to the owners.
Bowlaway Lanes is open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, noon to 10 p.m.; Thursday, Friday and Saturday, noon to midnight; and Sunday, 1-4 p.m. For more details, call 529-3000.
