Safeway Supermarket in the Willow Glen Plaza has left the neighborhood:
To help make up for the loss of convenient grocery shopping, we’ll be planting a larger garden this year. (Did someone mention a chicken coop and fresh eggs?)
Right next to Safeway’s vacated premises is a 24 Hour Fitness that seems to have grown by leaps and bounds. It was crowded this Saturday evening.
We walked in for a tour and ended up trying out several machines, one of which made us (or at least me) want to keep at it. I think they called it an elliptical something or other.
The prices for using the gym were all right; around $30 first and last month in advance and a $30 (probably negotiable) initiation fee. They were unwilling to put this in writing, however. Don’t know why, all the numbers are on their website.
Anyway, we’re not going to pursue it because there is no hot tub, steam room, or swimming pool. Bring your own towels and locker locks.
The big advantage, of course, is that it is within walking distance. But after walking there and back, who needs more exercise?
