You can help a popular Fall River entertainment spot stay in business, here is how



A popular Fall River spot is hoping you can help them stay in business.

Business owner Kevin O’Hara took to social media to say that despite the lease not being renewed at his location at 288 Plymouth Avenue, he does not want to see his business, Lazer Gate, die.

“So, Lazer Gate’s building is being sold to become self-storage units. Essentially, we have two options: find a new place and get started again or surrender and give up. I’m reminded of a line from Jericho (dating myself with this TV show reference) NUTS -Not Understand Term Surrender. So, if anyone has 15-20,000 square feet of space available……..
Lazer Gate has been here for 22 years, I’ve been part of it since leaving AT&T in 2008. I’m not ready to be done.”

O’Hara expects to have a spot in the mill through February.

According to an October Fall River Zoning Board of Appeals meeting, Bravo Development LLC will be turning the Borden Mill into an indoor storage facility after being granted a waiving of zoning requirements in a medical district pending a review of the property when work is completed.

Some of the businesses residing in the mill besides Lazer Gate is Straight Shooters, Inside The Park Batting Cages, Trader Jan’s, Coastal Career Academy, and Carter’s Clothing and Footwear.

According to Attorney Thomas Killoran, who represented Bravo Development at the meeting, the plan is for a complete rehab of the building in the interior in addition to aesthetic improvements to the exterior and the parking lot. The property will have 24-hour surveillance and two new loading ramps.

The 190,000-square-foot facility, which currently only has a 66% occupancy, will be part of a self-storage chain.

The business will be staffed from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

If you have any locations for Lazer Gate, you can contact O’Hara’s real estate agent, Donna Whritenour, of Remax, at (774) 930-2145.
