Mitchell's Fitness World closes; reimbursements planned

Fitness World in Mitchell has closed because of a lack of business, according to owner Brian Kroeger, of Parkston.

The gym, located at 1307 N. Main St., closed late last month after more than nine years in business. Notices had been posted on the front doors and around the facility to notify members of the impending closure, Kroeger said.

Anyone who purchased a year-long membership to the gym should receive a prorated reimbursement within the next 30 days, Kroeger said.

Much of the gym's equipment has already been sold, and the rest will be sold in the near future.

Kroeger said he does not plan to reopen Fitness World and has no immediate plans to get back into the fitness business.
