The DW Fitness First gym in Netherfield will ‘remain open and trading throughout August’ the company has confirmed after announcing it was entering administration.
In an email to members, the company said that ‘it is our intention to work with the Administrators to ensure this site remains operational in the long term’.
This administration impacts all of DW Sports retail stores and some gyms.
The gym on Victoria Retail Park reopened on July 25 after four months closure due to lockdown. Members were not charged during the forced closure period.
In the email they also said that The DW Sports retail store in Nottingham will continue to trade during August, and ‘has now today moved into a ‘Closing Down sale’ with all remaining products reduced to at least 40% off’.
They added: “This is a final opportunity to take advantage of some of our fantastic ranges at truly great prices.
The fitness firm also announced that Graham Newton and Ryan Grant, partners in BDO LLP, have been appointed as the Joint Administrators (‘the Administrators’).
Over 1,700 jobs are at risk. The DW Sports website has also been shut down.
