Goodlife Fitness might take over Target store locations

If you've been wondering who might possibly move in to the dozens of massive structures Target will leave vacant when it pulls out of Canada this year, here's a clue: Goodlife Fitness has expressed interest in potentially taking over some of the 133 soon-to-be empty stores.

In a statement released today, GoodLife founder and CEO David Patchell-Evans said the former Target locations "provide spacious and convenient locations that would be an excellent space for people to achieve their fitness goals." The company already has plans to expand to more than 350 clubs across Canada by the spring, and is aiming to get to 400 clubs by the end of the year - meaning this could be perfect timing for shopping centres concerned about finding new tenants.
