Suburban Lanes leaving Suburban Plaza

Per a meeting with the Decatur Heights Neighborhood, Selig has announced that the bowling alley will not be staying as Suburban Plaza is redeveloped.

UPDATE: In late June, Atlanta Magazine reported that the owners of downtown Decatur's Twains had purchased the bowling alley. Soon to be known as Comet Pub and Lanes, the venue will feature "32 lanes and vintage arcade games like pinball, plus shuffleboard and pool tables. About 90 percent of the space will be remodeled to include reclaimed church pews as on-lane seating, couches, and a bar made from a reclaimed bowling alley." Food-wise, Comet will feature sandwiches, burgers, pizza, and craft beers.

Decaturish reports that Selig has a letter of intent from Half Price Books; it appears this would be their first location in Georgia. According to their website, Half Price Books will "pay you cash for your books, music, movies, games, game consoles, e-readers, and you can spend this cash in the store or take it home with you."
