“After an amazing 8 years, we will close the doors of our downtown location [1001 16th St, NW] on Tuesday, August 28th, 2018. But don’t sweat (at least not until you’re taking a MINT Box class), we have two awesome locations, MINT Dupont and MINT Manhattan Laundry. While the building’s owner decided to lease the space to a corporate chain, we’re thankful for all the memories we’ve shared at this location. That being said, we will continue to be your neighborhood gym providing more class, and less drama.”
Any guesses on who the corporate chain is?
