Lancaster PA pro shops

There have been a few changes in pro shops, and owners in my area recently. The lady I used to go to has retired this week. The guy going in for her I've heard isn't too experienced. Before retiring, she had the most reasonable prices around. I have a feeling that is going to change once they remodel and make their changes. Another shop owner (Leisure Lanes) has left, and they won't tell me who is going to take his place. (They do know) Anyone know who would be taking over this shop?
I'm looking for a PSO in the Lancaster/York area that has reasonable prices, quality work, and maybe let me make payments on new equipment.

Sorry this post seems to be all over the place lol.

I am very familiar with the situation. Gary at leisure will likely be going to Rocky and operate there. I wouldn't call him inexperienced, as he has several decades of experience.

That being said, give Eric a call at Dutch. USBC Silver level coach, and a great ball driller.

Re: Lancaster PA pro shops

I by no means would call Gary inexperienced. He has been in the game since before I was even thought about.
From what I understood, Gary is only going to rocky to help out more on a part time basis.

Re: Lancaster PA pro shops

Blue Ball Lanes closed over a year ago. Land sold to a sportsman shop. They turned the lanes area into a pretty nice shooting range though...



I forgot about Bowler's Supply. My usual doubles partner has his stuff done there, swears by them. I've heard other good things coming from them too, they have a good reputation.

Love the diagram MeNo, so true.

It did close but Kris operates a pro shop from his garage. It's a 30 minute drive from my house but well worth it in my opinion because he's good.

Re: Lancaster PA pro shops

The guys at Bowlers Supply will definitely hook you up, and the prices are competitive for the market.

We have guys here locally that have stuff drilled there after getting initially fitted, and shipped directly to the local pro shops(at next truck delivery date) or UPS/Fedex.

If all else fails, http://www.ibpsia.com/go/find_shop/t...arent_menu/25/

Anyone on that list will be able to get you situated.

Buddies Pro Shop has a satellite store inside Clearview Lanes in Mount Joy.

Pure IT Pro Shop in Lebanon has a great reputation. The owner, Jeff Smith, is a great guy.

Re: Lancaster PA pro shops

I have talked with Chris Forry very briefly at the Dutchman tournament a couple years ago. I used to have their pro shop in Clearview drill for me. I am a little weary about taking my stuff there after noticing how the owner (owner of the bowling alley) is a little too greedy for my liking. Trying to charge $100+ for a 2nd drill ball, is absolutely absurd. Not to mention still paying for the plug and redial which is upwards of $60 there.
I may have to make the trip to bowler supply.
I was also told about Jeff Smith. He just bought Ephrata lanes and is in the midst of redoing the place, and starting his shop out of there.
Blue ball, and Ephrata are a solid 35-45 minutes for me, as I live in Maytown.
