Is House of Bounce bounced out?
Changes seem to be happening at The House of Bounceat 6301 Bandel Road. The popular children's play spot with its large inflatable bounce features and toys has been closed all week.
Calls to the center and to the owners, Sue and Ed Hiatt, have not been answered. Its website didn't offer any explanation and then the website itself became inaccessible as of Thursday.
While no one from the business has been available to answer questions, the business did recently sell the inflatables that it previously rented out to customers for parties.
It's difficult to say what might be happening at the four-year-old Rochester business.
The Hiatts sprang into action with the operation in the fall of 2008, and the store has been the site of many birthday parties and playgroup outings since then. It first opened at 2535 U.S. 14 West and then bounced to its current address behind the KTTC-TVstation in 2009.
With more than 18,000 square feet of space and 28-foot-high ceilings, the Bandel Road location seems to be a good fit.
I'll keep tracking this to see if this is just a brief hiatus or something else.
