Bowling alley gets new owners and name

Lincoln County native Reggie Mull and business partner Jason Ingle are hoping their first-time venture as bowling alley owners “strikes” it big.
They took ownership of the old Town and Country Bowling Alley about five weeks ago, changing the name to Striker’s Lanes and Lounge.
Mull used to hang out at the bowling alley when it was under different ownership. He would play pool.
Mull said Ingle had been working for a construction company and part-time for the bowling alley.
“We knew one another,” said Mull, adding he used to come to the lanes to shoot pool. “We started talking one day and decided to go into business together.”
After working for Clark Tire for a decade, Mull said it was time for a change.
“This was something we felt like would be a profitable business,” he said.
Each day, Striker’s offers something different for everyone.
Mondays offer industries in the area a chance to have industrial league bowling.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays feature a pool tournament and pool league.
Thursday mornings are reserved for the senior citizen bowling league.
Fridays and Saturdays are Moonlight Bowling from 10 p.m. – 2 a.m.
Mull said a new dimension to the business is something that’s offered in the lounge from Thursday nights to Saturday nights.
“We’re the only place in Lincoln County that offers the Coyote Ugly lounge experience,” said Mull.
Besides four pool tables and the lounge, there’s also the Strike Zone Grill.
Mull said the grill is opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“We have daily specials in the grill and in the lounge,” said Mull.
According to Mull, taking ownership of Lincolnton’s only bowling lanes was an easy process.
“The only thing we had to do is work on the machines and the lanes,” said Mull.
