Property/Business owners can have any kind of legal business they so choose. The Toys r Us storage place looks like they make good money from their business.I think you are on to something. Did FX Fitness own the building, or was the space leased to them? I think that gym used to be called Ballys? If the building is privately own, did they really just kick out a long, long time tenant for a storage company? Is the storage business that strong that they are able to give the landlord that much confidence over a gym that's been around forever on the westside? It all seems pretty strange. I do get the gym could have been struggling due to the pandemic. Seems like a strange time to shut down when everything has now opened back up thanks to the vaccines.
Things just don't add up here. The other strange part is it just shut down randomly on a Thursday according to the article with employees and gym members not given any notice.
