Suburban Lanes Closing as Suburban Plaza is Redeveloped

Suburban Lanes will be closing its current location in Suburban Plaza at the end of April, according to a new Decaturish post.  The announcement was made at a Decatur Heights Neighborhood Association meeting last night.

The post also states that Selig’s Bill Stogner already has a letter of intent from a bookseller out of Dallas called “Half Price Books“, which may take over lower-story space on the Church Street side of the business.

At this point, leases have been signed byWalmart, JoAnn Fabrics, Home Goods, and LA Fitness for the new Suburban Plaza.  Starbucks, AT&T and Ross For Less are also planning to be part of the development.

According to the report, Selig told neighbors in attendance that they were still trying to work with Cozy Burger Town, so it could remain part of the new development.
