Some business changes

A new business is coming to the College Mall: Anytime Fitness. It is scheduled to open the first week of July.
 They have signs in two storefronts, one on each side of the Smoke Shop. The door was open on the space that used to be occupied by 24/7 Fitness and it appears that a lot of remodeling is underway.
The other space they seem to be using is the space that used to house Help at Home. Help at Home has moved further south in the mall, occupying what used to be two spaces just south of Subway.

Is Rensselaer big enough for two fitness centers? We will find out. Curves is gone and Foxy's Hair Salon will soon also be gone from the back part of the Jordan Floral building. The sign on the door says that the last day of business will be July 26 and in August the owner will be working out of Tiki Cuts in DeMotte.

One can now make out the road that is being constructed in the Drexel Park area. Soon to be located near this road will be the Chamber of Commerce, which is moving from its location near the pedestrian bridge that leads to Potawatomie Park. It will located in the building that houses The Laundry Room in the space that most recently was a pet grooming place.
 Also moving downtown is Ardent Papers Photography, which has left its location across the alley from the Pub and has moved above Unique Finds. There is a For-Rent sign in its old location.

Lyons Insurance has a new name and some changes in ownership. It is now Gutwein Risner Insurance and it has expanded its offerings of insurance from crop and farm to auto, homeowners, health, and life. The signs in the window are new, but the sign above the sidewalk still has the Lyons name on it.
