What would you like to see in this former fitness center?
Once a Curves for Women gym, this now vacant space is Bowie Marketplace near the former Safeway is spacious to say the least. I've heard that the whole property here is up for sale, so the question may be a moot point. However, pie in the sky, what would you like to see fill this space? With a new LA Fitness going into Bowie Town Center this fall, another fitness facility does not seem necessary. Could this spot house a discount clothing store? A book store? A boutique? Tell Patch in the comments, what would you like to see fill the storefront of this vacant fitness center in Bowie Marketplace?
