Local businesses close, open near the Hill

The WKU Alumni Association expects that about 20,000 to 25,000 alumni will visit the university during Homecoming weekend, said Ginny Hensley, director of alumni programming and Homecoming co-chair.

But Bowling Green’s business landscape has changed a little since last year.

In an effort to help those former students find their way around town, we have composed a list of businesses that have come and gone since last year’s Homecoming festivities.
