Borders Books, located at 200 King Street in South Beach, is permanently closing its doors on Saturday, October 16th. Sad as it is to see any business close up shop, the real juicy part of the story is whether or not a alleged bowling alley will be replacing the 10,000+ square foot commercial space. Scratch that, a bowling alley and a laundry mat. If this rumor is true, the new bowling alley with be one of two already in the 'hood, because there's already the incredibly small and boring Yerba Buena Ice Skating & Bowling Center on Folsom at 3rd. Our opinion? Turn it into a roller skating rink!
