It was a first-of-its-kind in Wyandotte, but the Lollipop Play Lounge has closed after only being open a couple months.
The colorful, candy-themed, indoor play area for children 0-6 closed its doors sometime in December, according to parents who patronized the business.
The company's phone number has been disconnected and its Facebook page has been deactivated. Its website is still up, but doesn't mention the business being closed. An email sent through the website seeking comment was not returned.
Natalie Rankine, director of Wyandotte's Downtown Development Authority, said she has tried to contact the business owners, but has been unable to reach them. She did speak with a relative of one of the owners who said the business is up for sale and won't be reopening unless it sells.
In addition to offering drop-in playtime, the business also sold packages of eight visits for $40 or unlimited monthly visits for $50. Rankine said she's heard from upset customers who prepaid for future visits.
Anyone in that situation should contact the business through the email form on its website, Rankine said.
