With the craziness of the last few years, have you been thinking about making a big change in your life?  Maybe you've been considering ditching your job, maybe even ditching your career, and doing something else.

Well, if you love interacting with the public, and you have the entrepreneurial spirit, this could be the opportunity for you.

A currently closed candle-pin bowling alley in Lisbon Falls (just outside Lewiston) is up for auction.

It is a smaller operation that only has 8 lanes, but that can be a good thing.  It is far better to own a smaller business that is crazy busy all the time, than to own a massive business (with huge utility bills) that is only at 50% of capacity most of the time.  On top of the lanes, balls, pins, and machinery, the property also has a snack bar that could be expanded to offer much more than it previously did.

Located on Lisbon Street, near the heart of Lisbon Falls, it has a daily traffic count of over 10,000 vehicles.  Whether you you chose to use it as a bowling alley or convert it to some other kind of commercial venture, the property has a lot of potential.

Keep in mind that, while there is bowling alley equipment included with the property, the condition of that equipment is not guaranteed.  The listing on the auction site says:

Much of the bowling lane infrastructure remains in the property, although its utility has not been verified.

The bowling alley is being auctioned by a firm called Tranzon.  The property goes up for auction on January 14th, 2022 at 11 AM.

For more information or to set up a showing prior to the auction, you can call Ruth Lind at 207.751.1430
