It says that "Fresh & Easy, a British-owned grocery similar in size and marketing focus to Trader Joe's, plans to open its first store in the area later this year in the Rosewood Pavilion in the space now occupied by Express Fitness."
Does this mean express fitness is closing? What about its members (me!)??

The revised/corrected article linked here contains this statement:
"Fresh & Easy, a British-owned grocery similar in size and marketing focus to Trader Joe's, plans to open its first store in the area later this year in the Rosewood Pavilion in the space now occupied by Express Fitness."
I would guess looking for a new fitness center is in many people's future.

I'm curious about the Express Fitness location as well. According to the folks at the gym they aren't closing or going anywhere. According to the Planning Commission Report they would be relocated to another spot in the same shopping center. I'm guessing the part of the building nearest Santa Rita would be likely, unless there is other space I'm not aware of. But it doesn't sound like they are being driven out or anything.
