Slinkee's in Alexandria closing in March


ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - According to owner Phil Fuselier, Slinkee's will be closing in Alexandria in March 2018.

Fuselier said the closing was due to the economy and needing a bigger market to maintain operations of the facility. He added that moving from the Alexandria Mall to their current location was also a factor.

Slinkee's has been a fun environment for kids parties, gymnastics and play time in Cenla for over a decade.

Fuselier said he enjoyed his time with Slinkee's and seeing how much the community loved the business. However, Fuselier said he will continue his work with Red River Gymnastics.
