Eastern Lanes has been cleaned and sanitized! All set to re-open July 30th.


Press Release from 05/26/20

Middletown 05/26/20 – Eastern Lanes which has been providing family fun and entertainment to the Middletown area since the early 60’s, has been closed since March 16th 2020 due to the State of Ohio mandating all non-essential businesses remain shuttered to combat the spread of  COVID-19. With State of Ohio announcing that some non-essential businesses, including Eastern Lanes, may reopen as early as 05/26/20, Eastern Lanes has not officially decided when to do so in order to better understand the situation and assess how it can create a safe playing environment.


“The health and well-being of our customers and employees is our top priority,” said Brian Garland “Since the State of Ohio announced that certain non-essential businesses would have the opportunity to resume full business operations, we have been conducting a comprehensive review of city, state and federal operating guidelines and how they apply to our center. Until that review is complete and we are thoroughly satisfied with the results, we will remain closed until further notice.”


During the time that Eastern Lanes has been closed to the public, center management has been focused on new methods of sterilization and deep cleaning of its entire 34,096 square-foot facility located at 6943 Coles Rd, Middletown, Ohio 45044. The center has also revamped and updated its operational processes and procedures to best ensure the safety of its guests and employees. The 36 lane center, which will use a phased approach to its opening when it happens, will initially limit the number of customers occupying its facility at any one time as it adheres to state and municipal required social distancing guidelines that are still in place.


“We have a very large and spacious establishment, which will allow for us to properly place bowlers across our lanes at a safe and comfortable distance apart,” said Brian Garland. “We want to provide all of our bowlers with a respite during these tough times but do so in a way that’s carefully planned in order to keep our employees and bowlers safe and healthy.


Eastern Lanes is offering a carry-out food service Monday through Friday from noon to 6pm and delivery service through Doordash. As soon as a reopening date is established Eastern Lanes will post it on their Facebook page and website www.easternlanes.com
