Planet Fitness Gym Opening in Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- For more than two years, the site of the former Superfresh supermarket in Salisbury has sat empty, but a new tenant is coming to part of the building.

Planet Fitness gym will be taking over some of the space in the College Square shopping center. A new tenant has some excited, while others want to see a supermarket move back in.

"I think there's enough physical fitness places around here, especially with the colleges, there's always room in them," Lori Hansen said. "I feel like we should have another supermarket in there like we used to."

But Karen Kennedy who owns a business in the shopping center said the gym will help her financially.

"I'm very excited because it will bring more people to the center, I think it's a great opportunity for the people who live around here, the kids who go to school," Kennedy said.

Business owners and construction crews are buzzing over rumors that a supermarket could be on its way.

"There's supposed to be another supermarket, I've only heard one name. I don't know if I should say the name or not. What I've heard is Redner's, I haven't heard anything other than that," Dale Schultz said.

WBOC reached out to Redner's but our calls were not returned. Sperry-Van Ness officials told WBOC that they and other brokers are actively courting tenants, including supermarkets for the remaining space.

Either way, Kennedy said a supermarket- no matter which one- can help everyone.

"It's great. It'll bring more people to the center and it gives the population here somewhere else to shop other than the ones we have," she said.

The Planet Fitness gym is expected to open Nov. 11 in Salisbury.
