Gold's Gym, 275 Harbison Boulevard #2: Summer 2009   5 comments

Posted at 11:40 pm in closing

Well, it must be past midnight because Gold's Gym has turned into a pumpkin. (Hey, that's the best I could come up with..)

This is the plaza on Harbison which is just across from the Barnes & Noble / Olive Garden one, and which is anchored by Books-A-Million. I've always wondered a bit about that -- if Books-A-Million and Barnes & Noble were exactly equidistant from you, who would choose BAM?

In recent years, it seems these Halloween stores have started to spring up in empty storefronts all over each fall. I believe that last year, there was one on US-1 near I-26, one on Two Notch near the old Circuit City and one at Sandhill next to H Gregg. More power to them if they can make a business of it, and create some jobs -- it still just seems kind of weird to me to make that big a deal of Halloween. (Though as I mentioned last year, being on an escalator under a bevy of 'Naughty Nurses' is certainly inspiring).

UPDATE 14 December 2016: As mentioned in Have Your Say, a new gym, Crunch Fitness is opening (or may be open by this time) in this former Gold's Gym space in Harbison Center next to 2nd & Charles, the old Books-A-Million location.




The CBRE listing for the shopping center gives a detailed occupancy plan. I would not have guessed that many storefronts were vacant.

  1. Before it was Gold's, and Books A Million, this was the original location of the Harbison WalMart.

  2. This Gold's actually moved about 4 years or so. They built the huge one next exit down adjacent to I26. They shuttered this one and the one that was hidden off of Fernadina Road to consolidate into the newer facility.

  3. The store on US 1 sells fireworks in July, then switches to Halloween, then becomes a Christmas store. Multi-purpose!

  4. Four years? Show's you how much attention I pay to gyms :-)

  5. Thanks for the information on the original walmart. Got in to a debate with sister, brother, aunt, wife, and cousin who all said the Harbison Super Walmart was the only one. My sister used to work in Sansbury eye center and didn't remember. Thought I was going crazy.
