Sometime around Labor Day weekend, Troutdale will have a shiny new fitness center for patrons to enjoy.

Gresham resident Rhonda Bronenberg is getting closer to opening Anytime Fitness at 26940 S.E. Stark St.

With any luck, remodeling of the Troutdale Marketplace space to accommodate the gym, a Minnesota-based franchise, will be completed by the end of the month.

"We're probably looking at opening right around Labor Day weekend," the Indianapolis native said.

The 4,700 square-foot facility will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and feature cardio and strength-building equipment, free weights, along with functional group and personal training.

"With our business model, if I have 600 to 800 members, that would be plenty," Bronenberg said, "and hope they all show up at some point in time. We want to keep 'em coming back."

Evolution Tattoo celebrates new Troutdale space

Evolution Tattoo Gallery will celebrate the grand opening in its new downtown Troutdale location, 149 E. Historic Columbia River Highway, from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7.

The event will feature refreshments and raffles for free tattoos and shop merchandise such as T-shirts and hats carrying the Evolution logo.

Founded by Kent Bartley and Heather Densem in January 2016 in a location at 257th Avenue and Stark Street, the couple decided it needed a bigger location and moved to Troutdale earlier this year.

"We just wanted to expand and bring in a few more artists," Bartley said, "and just move up a little bit."

Evolution, which employs four tattoo artists, is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

First American Title plans grand opening event Sept. 19

First American Title will celebrate its expanded and remodeled space at 1205 N.E. Division St., Gresham, with a Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting and grand opening celebration from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19.

The insurance and settlement services business underwent an extensive remodel earlier this year, when the office relocated nearby before moving back in April.

"We gutted the whole place, added square footage and moved back in," said Stormi Lowe, branch manager and senior escrow officer. "We wanted to have a big customer appreciation and open house for our customers who haven't seen the new space."

Food and beverages will be served.
