The former Minyard Food Stores grocery on Twelfth at Polk closed years ago before it became El Mariachi supermarket.

That lasted only a year or two before it closed too. Now the 20,000-square-foot space has a new tenant, and its not a grocer.

Planet Fitness is expected to open there Dec. 8. Planet Fitness has more than 800 franchises nationwide and is marketed on the idea that it is not intimidating for casual or occasional gym users.
