Planet Fitness to replace Marshalls at Mondawmin Mall
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - The Marshalls space at Mondawmin Mall won't stay empty for long.
Planet Fitness will be moving into the northwest Baltimore mall, according to an announcement from MacKenzie Ventures, LLC.
It's expected to open by this summer.
The gym has signed a 22,000-square-foot lease for the space on Gwynns Falls Parkway. It will be Planet Fitness' fifth site in Baltimore City, according to the announcement.
Marshalls is moving out Jan. 12.
It's the second prominent business to leave after Target moved out.
“We are very excited to continue our growth in the Baltimore area and to be part of the Mondawmin Mall community,” said Stephen Smith, COO of Planet Fitness, in the announcement.
Mayor Catherine Pugh said: “In addition to providing a welcoming environment for people to improve their health and fitness, Planet Fitness will create jobs and give back to the community as they have in other neighborhoods.”
