I did close a facility and kept it quiet until about 30 days before we were going to close. I was attempting to find someone to take over the programs so that the gym could just continue under new management. But several prospective new owners were dragging their feet. And I was having second thoughts on leaving the area. I felt I had to give my members at least 30 days notice. And did so as soon as I made the decision to leave.
I felt badly about only giving 30 days notice. I can’t imagine coming to work to find a “closed” sign on the doors.
