On Friday, Gold’s Gym in Ashburn announced that it would be closing its doors next week and preparing to move to another location in the community. That new location has not been officially released yet.
“Effective Thursday, September 9th, 2021, at 9 p.m., Gold’s Gym Ashburn will be closing its doors at its current location,” the statement read. “Your Gold’s Gym membership will be transferred to Gold’s Gym Sterling.” It went on to say they are working on locking down a new location nearby. “We are getting close to finalizing a lease for a new location in Ashburn and hope to start construction shortly thereafter.” The full statement is reproduced below.
The Burn spoke to an employee at Gold’s Ashburn who said they are targeting a January 2022 opening in the new spot, if all goes smoothly.
Regular readers of The Burn may remember that last December, we reported that Gold’s was exploring the long vacant former Bloom supermarket space in the Village Center Belmont Greene shopping plaza. That was based on documents filed with the county. However, we have now confirmed that Gold’s is no longer pursuing the Bloom space.
