Sounds like PR spin. I get the sense that Goodlife is on the downswing - they haven't managed to capitalize on the recent explosion of smaller, urban gyms opening along traditional retail strips. Their sprawling layouts feel dated.

Toronto bar and cocktail supply shop, Cocktail Emporium are opening a new location in Union Station’s Front Street Promenade in early 2020. This will be their third store after the Queen West and Kensington Market locations.

Well that's exciting! I have very fond memories of visiting the flagship store on Regent Street in London in 1987...it absolutely blew all the toy stores in Toronto away, which is not surprising given our culture of mediocrity. Hopefully this can help change that...

Why don't they just introduce commercial rent control instead of this?
