    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Winchester Bowl has been a staple in the Memphis community for decades, but the bowling alley could be closing their doors for the last time very soon.

    Customers enjoyed 40 lanes of traditional bowling, cosmic bowling, and bumper bowling at Winchester Bowl.

    The business plans to shut down April 30, but the owners are actively seeking buyers to keep the bowling alley open.

    Part of the statement on the bowling alley's Facebook page reads, "Winchester Bowl has been listed for sale, and we are actively seeking interested buyers in order to continue the bowling tradition in Memphis."
