Union Rack and Roll to limit hours during HVAC upgrade
Union Rack and Roll will use special hours of operation April 29-June 16 as improvements are made to its heating and air conditioning systems, followed by one week of closing before reopening with a more appealing facility.
Hours of operation during the project will be 5 p.m.-midnight daily. During that period, the facility will be without air conditioning, but efforts will be made to maintain a reasonable environment. Union Rack and Roll will close June 17-23 for final HVAC improvements as well as for the installation of new carpet.
Normal business hours will resume June 24. For the summer, normal hours are 11 a.m.-midnight daily. The improvements will provide better comfort and appearance and thus a more enjoyable recreational experience.
