To Our Staff, Loyal Customers, Family and Friends,
This is an open letter to the valued community of Lake County, loyal customers, League Bowlers and Staff of Lakeside Family Fun & Event Center. It is with deep sadness that we announce that the doors of Lakeside Family Fun Center have closed as of April 5th, 2015. Our last night of business was Saturday April 4th, 2015.
We have poured out our hearts, spent countless hours, and significant investment into turning Lakeside FFC into a wonderful place for the community to enjoy over the past five years. We have supported hundreds of worthy causes and charities through our gift card program and hosted many Sober Grads, All Nighters, Church events, Christmas Parties and too many birthday parties to count. The entire time we have done this we have been on a month to month lease. We have been attempting to negotiate a long term lease since we first met our new landlord in the beginning of 2011 and have continued to do so up until this very day, to no avail. Finally, at this point we are at a standstill with the landlord as he has decided to go a different direction and leased the building to another party and has given us notice to vacate the premises. Sadly we have our final court date on April 14th. Please be assured that this is NOT about the payment of rent as we have honored our rent for every month since June of 2010 up until we received the notice to vacate.
Therefore, with the guidance of trusted counsel we unfortunately had no other choice but to close our doors and start the process of winding down our business and we are devastated by this. We know this has come as a shock to many of you but we want to assure you we have made every possible attempt to resolve this situation with the landlord. We want to thank you for your support and patronage over the years helping make Lakeside a place for great memories and we will be forever grateful. We know that sometimes when God closes one door he opens another and we remain hopeful.
We are making every attempt to locate another location to potentially re-open Lakeside Family Fun & Event Center in the future. Please be assured that all employees have been paid in full and all vendors have been contacted to make final arrangements. Please feel free to contact us at (707) 263-4828 with questions and please be patient and bear with us in this trying time.
Once again thank you to everyone.
John A. Richardson, President
Lakeside Family Fun & Event Center, Inc.
