EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An update on the closure of CJ's Willow Bowling Center.

The owner tells 14News the offer to sell the building to the House of Prayer Evansville seemed like the right move.

May 18 will be the last day for the bowling center.

"We're happy with the transition.  We're happy going out on top. We've had tremendous support. We couldn't be where we are today without the support of the community and our staff and that's what made us who we are," said Patrick Rayburn, Co-owner of CJ's Willow Bowling Center.

Rayburn says he is thinking about opening CJ's Lunch Buffet in downtown Evansville.
