J. Jill and Vie Fitness & Spa
Manager Sharon apologized that she couldn't provide a description of her own--corporate rules prevent her from talking to the media, and corporate didn't return calls.
Hidden behind the facade of the Bigalora building is a recessed second tier. Vie Fitness & Spa will be opening a second, slightly stripped-down location there. Owner Heather Dupuis says it will include "a small retail segment: salads, but no smoothies, and some lifestyle clothing, like scarves and mittens." No yoga wear (there's a lululemon store for that across the parking lot). She hopes to open in January.
