BLOOMINGTON (25 News Now) - Skate ‘N’ Place, a roller-skating rink on Bloomington’s south side, will close for good after 50 years in business.

The property in the 1700 block of South Morris Avenue is being sold, “but sadly no one came forward to keep in a rink,” the business said in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

A “major” company will convert the building into a warehouse, according to the current owner.

“This decision does not come easily for us,” the owner said.

“After nine years of maintaining our daytime jobs and running the rink, we are exhausted.”

Skate ‘N’ Place will close before spring,’ the owner said.
