Rachel's Rumors: Bowling alley update

Posted: August 23, 2014 - 3:04pm

I’ve been trying for a few weeks to learn exactly what the plans are for the skating rink, which apparently is scheduled to be torn down and redeveloped. However, I’ve been unable to get in touch with anyone who can give me further details.

As for the bowling alley, however, you may have heard some misinformation about that. So let me tell you the story there. The owners are going to do some improvements, interior remodeling, carpet and painting, and a little exterior work, maybe some landscaping. In fact, by this time, they’re probably in the process. Like I said, I was trying to find out about the skating rink and getting nowhere for a while.

Pizza place

The new Domino’s Pizza is under construction on Salem Road in the shopping center behind the Bear’s Den Exxon at Dave Ward Drive. This will be good news if you live on Salem or Dave Ward or in the vicinity and you like Domino’s.

Downtown

• As usual, there are a few things going on downtown. Central Station, the gas station that has been completely renovated at Locust and Caldwell Streets, should be finished in about two weeks, I’m told. It is going to have a restaurant/deli inside when it reopens.

• Work has begun on The White Goat, which is coming to Oak Street at the former Soundstage building. It is a home décor business that carries chalk paint, antique and vintage-style furniture. They also offer classes. It is quite the popular place in Little Rock, apparently.

• Hipsway is expanding its retail space into the area that Royal We recently moved out of.

That’s about it for this week. Call or email me if you have questions, suspicions, or otherwise rumorable things.

Curious, off Hogan near Dave

Curious, off Hogan near Dave Ward behind the Car Wash there is something being constructed. I have seen the earth moved around and it looks like a foundation is about to be poured but there are no construction signs to be found anywhere.

Heck I can't even find a building permit displayed anywhere from the road.

Do you have any ideas what the heck is being down back there?

It was originally intended to

It was originally intended to be Conway's first stand alone beer store, but now its going to be a daycare center. Irony?

Correction: you mean Conway's second

stand alone beer store. Non premises consumed alcohol has been sold a mile or so up the road for fifty years. Very meager selections and substantially inflated prices. However, when you're nineteen years old on a Sunday afternoon, it was considered money well spent.

Bowling alley

It'd be great if they had room to put in a legit billiards area.

Are there any good pool halls in/around Conway? Anyone?
