Gart Properties LLC leases space at Folsom and Arapahoe between Larkburger and Rocky Mountain Kids.
Denver, Colorado – May, 2013 –
Play! opened for business on May 4, 2013. Located next to Rocky Mountain Kids in The Village Shopping Center, Play! is a children’s activity center offering dance, movement art, science & enrichment classes, kids birthday parties, special events, open-play, and after school day camps. Play! is also available for group meetings, classes and training sessions.
Owner Lynne Milot also owns and operates Grandrabbits Toy Shoppe with locations in The Village Shopping Center, Flatirons Market Place in Broomfield and a third location in the Orchard Town Center in Westminster. “Our former neighbor at The Village, a Music & Play center for young children, locked the door one Sunday night and never came back! We walked by the space daily and listened to the parents talking in the courtyard behind Grandrabbit’s Toy Shoppe about how they missed the experience that had been provided next door. After months of wondering what might happen to the space, I had an “ah ha” moment that this was an opportunity in the making.” stated Milot.
Asked what this location offered that others didn’t, Milot said, “The location was key to opening Play! Several aspects contribute to this factor including: proximity to the established Grandrabbit’s Toy Shoppe, the space availability in Kids Row in The Village Shopping Center where families with children already gather, plenty of parking, and that the space had been a center for children’s activity and it was actually the original location of Grandrabbit’s Toy Shoppe when it opened in 1977 ( a bit of nostalgia).”
The lease term on the 3,228 square foot space is five years.
