The new location will be next to another new store, Dicks Sporting Goods. The new storefronts fill the space left vacant when Sears closed its location at the mall in September, ending its onetime anchor store run at the retail center.
Members at the new Planet Fitness will enjoy more than 18,000 sq. feet of space filled with more than 80 pieces of cardio equipment, 20 55” plasma TVs with wireless connections to all cardio equipment, tile and granite appointed locker rooms, HydroMassage beds, and massage chairs, among other amenities.

When we saw this location at the Rhode Island Mall come available we jumped at the opportunity since it significantly increased member convenience with direct access from major highways and traffic routes. We believe our members will love our new location,” said Planet Fitness franchisee Steve Eddleston.
“We encourage everyone to come down and check out our brand new flagship location at the remodeled Rhode Island Mall, which replaces our former Warwick location behind Herb Chambers on Bald Hill Road. We have taken the opportunity to upgrade our facility with state-of-the-art
The Grand Opening event will be held Jan. 4 at 4 p.m. with giveaways, refreshments, and club tours.
