The opening date for a 24/7 gym in Stowmarket has been announced.

PureGym will open in the former Aldi site in Gipping Way on Tuesday July 6. 

It will offer personal training, as well as weights and cardio training. 

The new gym will create seven jobs for the local economy — fewer than the 13 full-time and two part-time jobs that were originally thought.

Cllr Gerard Brewster, Mid Suffolk District Council cabinet member for economy said: “I am delighted to welcome PureGym to Stowmarket adding to the range of leisure facilities available to the community.

"As part of our vision for Stowmarket, we are committed to supporting businesses on our high street, creating reasons for people to visit and boosting our local economy.”
