Liberty Lanes located in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, was more than just a bowling alley to me. It was a bit of a dive, but that’s what made it special during my college years. For over 30 years, this bowling center was a go-to spot for cheap $2 drinks on Thursday nights, frozen pizza, and a game of bowling with friends. But, like many old favorites, Liberty Lanes couldn’t keep up the doors open the decade after I graduated college and was forced to shut its doors forever.

I often wonder, could some clever marketing have kept it open? In this blog post, I’m sharing a bunch of marketing slogans and taglines that might have given Liberty Lanes a fighting chance. My goal is that these bowling marketing slogans and taglines help keep other lanes out of the business gutter.

Drawing from a well of fond memories and a deep understanding of what made Liberty Lanes special, my goal with this blog post was to craft a variety of marketing slogans and taglines that could have made the marketing difference with this aging business.

These aren’t just words. They are echoes of the spirit that once filled those lanes. They are what might have been, a tribute to a place that, in its heyday, was more than just a bowling alley – it was a community hub.
