Chocolate Lounge Closes, Fitness First to also close

The prominent Chocolate lounge cafe has abruptly closed its doors.
Meanwhile, the Fitness First gym above the former Chocolate lounge cafe
announced it will be closing down on 14 November.
In a letter to members, the club stated that it decided not to renew the lease when it expires,
although no reason had been stated. Speculation points to increasing rent as the reason for not
renewing their lease. In the same way, many other smaller retailers have been forced to close down due to exhorbitant
rental fees being charged by the owners of Chadstone Shopping Centre.
