Tri City Bowl presents false advertisement

Share Article

Tri City Bowl has an ad in the West Vally Views Sunday paper on page V3 which reads "Rent-A-Lane Every Sunday 10am to Noon" All you can bowl $12.00, up to 6 people". They are not honoring it!

Try City Bowl has this ad in the Vista-West Valley View, Litchfield Park, Arizona. It apparently is used only to have people get up early in the morning to get to their bowling alley. The ad is not honored. My family and I went there last Sunday (31 Aug 03) to partake in this great bowling opportunity, along with approximately 12 other family groups, only to find out that this is a farce! They (Tri-City Bowl) actually charged $10.00 per hour per lane! We all (prospective customers) argued with the attendant to no avail. We also asked him to call the owner so he could get authorization for honoring the ad. After making the call, he said that the owner said "No!". This is the utmost in false advertising! 50% of the families there were so upset that they just left and told the attendant that Tri-City Bowl would never get any of their business. The other 50% of us stayed and paid the $10.00 per hour. However, we did mention to the poor attendant (realizing he was just the messenger) that we would be advising someone (better business bureau, etc.) about the advertising practices of this establishment. As you can see, I am already getting my two cents in. I have since called Tri-City Bowl twice to speak with the owner personally. Each time the attendant (this time Bryan) stated that the owner was not in, and that they had no idea when he would be in. According to the attendant, he only comes in one day a week, and the staff never knows what day that will be. However, I did get his name (Mahood). I am not sure if this is spelled correctly, but that is how Bryan thought it was spelled. Bryan did not even know his last name. Some business practices huh? I will continue to pass this information around to other media types. In the meantime, if you happen to pick up a copy of the Vista-West Valley, don't believe what you read about TRI-CITY BOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
