Begonia ID and care please

I saw this plant at my bank and was told they got it from the local hardware store. They thought it was a double begonia. There wasn't a plant ID stick in the plant.

So, of course, the hardware store didn't have any, or so I thought. I stopped by this a.m. and I found the plant, minus blooms, in their greenhouse "medic" area. I'm so excited. I re-potted it and hoping it may start blooming again.

I want to strictly keep it as a house plant, so any helpful hints and tips on care are greatly appreciated.

Did you post the pic on the "Name That Plant" Forum? You'll probably get more answers there. Everytime I post a pic there, I get an answer within a couple of days. Good luck.
