27 Aug Australian Sports Nutrition is Moving Location
Australian Sports Nutrition (ASN) Gladstone is moving shop fronts from Tank Street to Sun Valley Marketplace.
Ben Murphy has been the local ASN franchise owner since May 2012 and is incredibly excited for the move.
“The Sun Valley Marketplace really suits our business model, there are a lot of businesses there that really compliment our store.
There is a lot of foot traffic there, you have Drakes, Hub Total Fitness, Jham Bar, and Kin Kora Meats. I think our store will complement those businesses well.”
“The biggest reason is parking, it’s really hard to get parking on Tank Street, and we’ve received that feedback from our customers over the years. Being in Tank Street has never been a negative but we do have customers say if there isn’t a park that’s easily accessible, they won’t come into the store that day.”
Ben went on to say that the new ASN store will feature some new renovations and branding.
“The second reason is that part of my franchise agreement is that I have to bring the store up to the current model of the new ASN stores.
“So, the industry has changed massively over the last nine years, the stores have moved right away from being a body building type store to a general health and well being store. So, to fit that market we feel like we need to move with the times and make our new store a lot more inviting. So, our options were to refit the current store or seek out new opportunity.”
Ben hopes to be in the store by the end of September.
