BANGOR- Since July 1 different businesses such as spas, indoor and outdoor entertainment and even bowling alleys have been open to the public, all thanks to Phase 3 of Governor Mills’ reopening plan.
For Angelina Meucci, the manager of Bangor’s Family Fun Bowling Center, having the businesses doors open once again comes with new rules to keep the bowling alley as clean and safe as possible for new or returning customers.
“It’s been great being reopened, obviously being closed for three and a half months has been difficult but we’ve had a very positive response both from our committed dedicated league bowlers and all of our open bowling from the community. It’s definitely been really great,” Meucci says.
Meucci says currently the bowling alley’s limit is 50 people, customers can’t come in groups larger than six and each group will have to sit at least a lane away from each other to safely go bowling.
“People are kind of just staring to now feel a little bit more comfortable going out in public but it’s certainly not as much as it was three and a half months ago before we closed down,” Meucci says.
She adds that in the week since the business has been reopened, she hasn’t seen nearly as many customers walk through the door as she used to before the pandemic but wants the public to know that the bowling center is reopened officially.
“We are trying to post frequently and people are sharing and that’s wonderful but I think it’s definitely a mixture of both that people may not realize that we’re open yet and people are still a little hesitant to get back into routine of going out and doing activities and not being quarantined,” Meucci says.
