The alley's last day is Wednesday, with bowling games, hot dogs, tacos, beers and soft drinks available all day for $1. Robin Hood Lanes is open from 9 a.m. to midnight.
The property at 9801 Edmonds Way has been sold to California-based Seven Hills Properties, which is seeking to build a 14,490-square-foot Walgreens store and a 3,300-square-foot bank on the property.
"There are a lot of angry people, including me," said Charlie Pascoe, who with his partner Mike Gubsch owns the bowling-alley business.
The building's owner who sold the property, John Guenther, could not be reached for comment Friday.
City of Edmonds hearing examiner Phil Olbrechts gave the project a go-ahead last summer.
"Community concern over the loss of this valuable community asset is certainly understandable," Olbrechts wrote in his decision. "However, the due process (and) state and federal constitutions strictly prohibit the city from denying the permit applications in order to preserve the bowling alley."
Olbrechts found that the proposed development satisfies all legal requirements and approved the application.
