Question: I’m curious as to if/when the Planet Fitness in Greer, is supposed to be completed. I heard before the pandemic an opening of this past summer, but it looks like no progress had been made,
Answer: Don’t worry, Greer’s Planet Fitness is still on track to open this year.
I wrote about this project late last year when someone asked what would be going into the former Big Lots space in the Greer Plaza development at 805 W. Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greer.

According to Abigail Lacaillade, an account executive with the company that handles PR for Planet Fitness, the Greer location is slated to open later this year, though an exact date is not yet known.
The gym will fill more than 20,000 square feet of space in the development.
Planet Fitness currently has nine locations in the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson area including on on Wade Hampton closer to Greenville.
The low-cost gym chain is known for its “judgment free zone” policy that’s aimed at creating a gym atmosphere that’s accessible to people in all phases of fitness.
Other businesses at the Greer Plaza site include a Dollar General, Belk and Walmart Neighborhood Market.
Lacaillade said she would keep me posted on an exact date and I will share that information as I’m able.
