What’s happening to the old Walgreens on Roswell’s Mansell Road?

This is "Actual Factual North Fulton." A column where I will answer your questions about what's going on in north Fulton County.

An empty building has sat on the corner of Alpharetta Highway and Mansell Road for months.

Many of you – including readers Natonya and Kimberly – have asked, What’s going on with the old Walgreens on Ga. 9?

Grab your headphones and water bottle, and throw on your favorite pair of yoga pants or gym shorts. A new gym is coming to Roswell.

Two city officials confirmed that a Planet Fitness will move into that location, which was the former home of a Walgreens. The pharmacy shut its doors this February, after 15 years in business.

Mark Wolff, Roswell’s deputy director of community development, and Julie Brechbill, Roswell’s community relations manager, both confirmed that Planet Fitness is coming. However, neither knew when the gym would open.

I reached out to Planet Fitness for comment, but a representative from the company has yet to respond. When I called the number listed for the new location in Roswell, an automated message said the gym would open in "early November."

There is also a pre-sale trailer offering specials on memberships at 10790 Alpharetta Highway. That is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., until the gym opens.

Planet Fitness was founded in 1992 in New Hampshire and now has more than 1,400 locations nationwide.
