The top of the marquee will soon have to change at White Rock Center. Impact Fitness announced it will close its location at Buckner and Northcliff.

In a letter to members, Impact wrote, “The staff, members and community at our White Rock club have have always held a special place in our heart.” It discusses even operating the gym at a loss to stay, but in the end, the “relentless battle with the new landlords” was too much.

The letter from the Impact Management Team says they spent tens of thousands in legal fees to renew the lease in what was once Lake Highlands Center, but the fight is now over. Sept. 4 will be the last day services are offered. Members can transfer their account to any of the YouFit locations within 10 miles of the location.

The shopping center has seen a transformation over the last couple years, with El Vecino and La Caveau Vinotheque joining the Green Spot in the Old Lake Highlands shopping center, which was painted white and still has plenty of vacancy.

We have reached out to the property owners, Venture Commercial, as well as the Impact team, and will follow up as more information surfaces. Read the entire letter below.
