Company officials said there will be new food and beverage options. Including a 'Cinnabon Kiosk' opening in December at Center Court. 

Action News Now spoke to people in Chico on Friday to see what they thought about the changes.

“I think Chico has enough gyms already," Chico resident Kassie Ramirez said. "I think what Chico needs more of is retail stores."

Another Chico resident, Lauren Aubuchon said she is all for the new gym.

"I’m all about health and fitness so hopefully it'll get people out and moving," Aubuchon said.

The Chico Mall Management said Planet Fitness will be opening up in March.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
