Attention Sean O’Shea
I understand that you were at my club this morning asking questions about the future of my business, Mississauga Family Fitness. I have been in the process of actively trying to resolve issues my company has with it’s (SIC) landlord. If the resolution cannot be accomplished arrangements are in place with Wynne Fitness, near by fitness club, to honor all of my Mississauga Family Fitness members’ memberships in full.
