In a victory for the free-market, and what many will call a pretty big risk considering the clientèle and industry, the N&O reports that the Buffaloe Lanes bowling alleys around Raleigh will go completely smoke-free.
The customers asked and they responded. The owners of the business didn’t need some overbearing big-brother government regulation to step in and tell them how to run their business. They made a choice that they feel is what is best for them, and kudos to them.
Will it help or hurt their bottom line? Time will tell, but at least they were able to make the decision for themselves.
But really, no smoking at a bowling alley? Can you imagine The Dude and Walter not being able to smoke while they bowled?
