Statement Regarding February 20, 2021 Shooting Incident

East Norriton Township, PA – Our Town Alley management and staff are devastated by the violence that occurred at our establishment Saturday evening, February 20, 2021. Our prayers are with the victims, their families, and our entire community, which has been rattled by this unusual incident.

Going back to its days as Facenda Whitaker Lanes, Our Town Alley has always been a safe place where families come to enjoy themselves, a place for friends and camaraderie. As East Norriton Township Chief of Police Brandon Pasquale told news outlets, this incident is an anomaly, an uncommon occurrence in our neighborhood. It follows a year that has been tough on our business, our patrons, and our community because of the pandemic.

Just as we have been recovering from this difficult past year, we will also recover from this event. We affirm our mission to maintain a family-friendly, fun entertainment center. We are committed to working with authorities, security experts, and community leaders to make sure nothing like this happens again at our establishment. 

2/23/21 Update
Our Town Alley has resumed normal hours of operations and league play. We continue to work with authorities and other experts to secure our family-friendly entertainment center and will keep you abreast of these efforts. We are also coordinating a springtime community event with municipal and business leaders. Be sure to follow our social pages for more information.  



About Our Town Alley


Our Town Alley opened in 1959 as Facenda Whitaker Lanes, named after two of Philadelphia’s famous news and sports reporters. By the 1980s, it grew to 50 lanes, added Steppy’s Sports Bar and Grill, and completed several renovations, modifications, and modernizations. In 2020, the bowling alley was rebranded as Our Town Alley to reflect its family-friendly atmosphere and the recent additions of a game room, laser tag, and a club box suite. Plans are underway to renovate Steppy’s and rename it 2912 Eatery and Bar.
