THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville is continuously seeing growth in its community, which in turn attracts more business.

The city's newest business is just months away from completion.

Planet Fitness began construction in March, and construction should be complete in October.

The gym is located on Highway 19, and the owner included rental space on the side of the building to accommodate more business.

"The retail jobs are always very important to us. Number one, that's a job for a person to support themselves and their family. And then the retail sales tax dollars that we receive for retail is very important to all of us," said Shelley Zorn, Payroll Development Authority executive director. 

Zorn said this is a great opportunity for Thomasville to continue expanding, and it fits the needs of the active, outdoor living lifestyle in the area.

The gym will bring in over 30 new jobs to Thomasville.

The number of jobs the building's rental side will bring is undetermined.
