BELVIDERE — Planet Fitness is coming to Belvidere.
According to Gina DelRose, the city’s community development planner, the franchise company has submitted “very preliminary” building plans, along with demolition permits to clear out a former Rent-A-Center, 122 S. State St., and take over some of the adjacent Salvation Army Family Store & Donation Center.
“They’re taking one fourth of it,” said Kerren D’Angelo, Salvation Army’s assistant manager. “We are excited to have them as neighbors. We think it will be good for our sales having them next door.”
Construction began last week, D’Angelo said.
