Yes bowling alley is for sale, but no buyer

Print Article

The Glacier Lanes bowling alley in Columbia Falls is for sale.

But the alley hasnít sold, co-owner Steve Ferkovich noted recently.

Rumors have hit the streets that Smithís Food and Drug bought the alley, but that hasnít happened, he said. Thereís also rumors that developer Mick Ruis bought it as well. Not true, either.

It is true, he said, that Smithís has shown an interest in it. Smithís would like to build a gas station. But none of those deals have come to fruition. In the meantime, the alley is forming fall leagues and going on as normal, he said.

Ferkovich and his partner, Greg Bauska, have owned the alley for about 20 years. Ferkovich said heíd like to find a buyer who wants to keep it as a bowling alley. Bowling is popular in Columbia Falls. About 200 adults are in the leagues and another 75 youth. Folks can also walk-in and bowl as well.
