New Planet Fitness Gym To Come To Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The long-vacant Super Fresh grocery store building in Salisbury will soon become a Planet Fitness gym.

The 24-hour facility is set to occupy 17,000 square feet of the former store, which closed in the summer of 2011. It will operate just down the street from the Maggs Physical Activity Center on Salisbury University's Campus, but some students say, they do not expect any big changes for the school's gym.

"I don't think it's going to affect incoming freshman or people already staying in the doors, but I honestly I think off-campus students will take advantage of the Planet Fitness because it's always packed in here," says Jake Irish, a student at Salisbury University.

"I can see a lot of college students joining, but I think the attendance here will stay up," says Michael Corr, another student at Salisbury University.

Planet Fitness is set to open on November 11th, but employees are already letting locals sign up in their temporary home, just a few stores down from where the new gym will be.
