Crunch Closing

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Aug 18, 2009 9:40PM

One of the city's last two Crunch Gym locations - at 38 E. Grand Ave. - is shutting its doors, possibly as early as September 8. The exact date of the closing depends on a ruling from a New York bankruptcy court. The gym's owners - AGT Crunch - has closed three other locations since filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in May. One location - 939 W. North Ave. - remains open. For now. [Crain's]
