Three West Seattle biznotes tonight:

TONY’S MARKET OPENS TOMORROW: After weeks of questions about when Tony’s Market at 35/Barton would open, we reported two weeks ago that people we found working at the site expected it would be within about a week and a half away. OK, the wait was a little longer, but now it’s almost over. Thanks to Cheri for the tip – she told us this afternoon that market proprietor Joey Genzale told her tomorrow is opening day; we subsequently stopped by to confirm it. From Saturday on, Tony’s will be open daily, 9 am-7 pm.

CAPITOL LOANS IS CLOSED: Thanks to the texter who tipped us to this one:


We went over and found signs posted in every window saying that loans can “be redeemed at the new location in Preston” (in east King County) and new loans are being handled at the company’s Capitol Hill store until the Preston location is ready to do that. The now-closed West Seattle location is on land at 4754 Fauntleroy Way SW for which a mixed-use development is planned, as first reported here in December and updated last month when the apartment count (now 133) and parking-space count (now 134) both went up. The project will have to go through Design Review, but there’s no date yet for the first meeting.

JUNCTION FITNESS: What had been Snap Fitness on the 42nd SW side of outer Jefferson Square since 2008 is now Junction Fitness. Donald Ward is the new owner of the 24/7 gym, now an independently owned gym. He says his journey started there as a member under the previous ownership; then he became manager, and now is the owner. As a West Seattle resident, his bio says, he “knew that West Seattle was the area to open his) very own gym, and help the community reach their fitness goals. A strong believer in providing the best customer service to the community, and a strong supporter of locally owned businesses. If you don’t catch Donald training his clients, you can catch him working the front desk, mopping/cleaning, or getting a workout himself… he is for sure a ‘hands-on’ owner that will bend over backward to keep his members happy.” Junction Fitness is at 4714 42nd SW.
