(BOWIE – January 8, 2024) – Bowie Town Center, a longtime staple for suburban shoppers in Prince George’s, is facing two more unfortunate business losses to begin 2024.
Party HQ, a Black-owned entertainment space complete with a bar, bowling alley and gaming stations, announced they are closing. A post on the company’s website says that the company was never able to get past the hurdles imposed by the pandemic, and thanks all who patronized their business during their time of operation. The business first opened in October 2020 amid the pandemic.
The site of Party HQ was previously the primary food court for Bowie Town Center, and it is unclear what the building will become in the future.
TGI Friday’s, located near the now-shuttered Regal Cinema, has closed. This is one of six closings in the DMV region, leaving eleven total TGI Fridays in operation nearby. The company said it had offered transfer opportunities to more than 1,000 affected employees, or more than 80% of those affected by the closings.
