It's always a kick to see new businesses enter the area, especially one that should breathe a little life into the comatose Mall at Steamtown in downtown Scranton.

A gym chain, called "Crunch" opened an outlet yesterday.  I have to say I'm impressed, and I've been a member of another gym for nearly four years.  This one has all the toys.

Drawbacks?  A few.  I usually work out in the middle of the night, and this one is not a 24 hour operation.  It's also in a mall, and that could be a little inconvenient because of parking and schlepping about in workout clothes.

Still, I hope it works.  We need another successful business.
