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.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
