Taunton bowling alley closes abruptly

The AMF Lanes in Taunton closed abruptly.

A Taunton bowling alley closed abruptly last week.

A sign on the door of AMF Taunton Lanes on Winthrop Street said the alley closed Aug. 7.

The note also thanked guests for their loyalty and it apologized for the "abrupt notice and any inconveniences" caused by the sudden closure.

"To our loyal league customers, we truly thank you for your continued patronage over the years," the note said.

It also gave a phone number of 800-342-5263 for any customers with questions.

The alley's marquee sign was painted black.
