‘Curves,’ a women’s health club located at 17824 1st Avenue South, is for sale, according to a Craigslist Ad we found Friday (May 20th).

“OWN Your own TURN KEY Business ~ CURVES – $245000 (Normandy Park)” reads the ad’s headline.

“Wouldn’t you like to own a business that you could leave town, go on vacation, and know your employees ran the “shop” like you were never gone? This is your chance!” reads the ad, which lists the price at “$245,000 (somewhat negotiable).”

The Ad continues:

“This franchise has close to 500 members and continues to grow each month. Our staff members are qualified trainers and are capable of maintaining the day-to-day business without any help from the owners. They have formed personal relationships with our members and work to make each member’s workout a pleasant break in their day.”

Here’s more from the listing:

The Normandy Park/Burien area has been home to this prosperous Curves franchise since it opened in September of 2001. The business is located in one of the newest buildings in the area. It sits directly bordering a busy, four lane thoroughfare that links Burien and Des Moines. The neighboring businesses include banks, floral and gift shops, service stations and a QFC shopping center with a variety of stores.

As the original owners, we have made certain our facility has the newest and most progressive equipment to include the personal coaching of Curves Smart, 14 workout stations including the stepper and the stretching circuit. We are open every day, all day, from 5:45 a.m., except Sunday.

Zumba classes are offered five days a week for fun and a challenge to your workout routine.

    I don’t think this is actually located in Normandy Park Towne Center. Isn’t it across the street from QFC?

    Good luck selling- you might want to do this quickly; this may be among the few profitable Curves clubs out there! It appears that this franchise is quickly going down the drain. See what the Wall Street Journal had to say about the thousands of Curves clubs that have closed in the last few years: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704862404575351293938715632.html
