SoulCycle parent company Equinox Group said Monday that its members, riders and staff will be required to show one-time proof of vaccination in order to enter its facilities, beginning early next month.
The company will kick off this effort in New York City, it said in a press release.
To get a sense of vaccination status, Equinox said it recently conducted a survey and found that 96% of its members reported having already been vaccinated against Covid-19, along with 89% of employees.
The high-end fitness chain added that an “overwhelming majority” of its paying customers are in support of mandating vaccines in order to enter its clubs and cycling studios.
“We have a responsibility to take bold action and respond to changing circumstances with urgency,” said Equinox Group Executive Chairman Harvey Spevak. “We encourage other leading brands to join us in this effort to best protect our communities.”
Offering such items as jewelry, clothing, electronics, home goods, small kitchen appliances and games, the Wrigleyville Mills Fashion Outlet outlet is expected to benefit from the Lakeview community.
Although retailers such as Kmart and Toys R Us have fallen victim to the shop-at-home trend, the Mills Outlet Group believes there is room in the local retail environment for an outlet mall, and the one at the former Wrigley Field stadium will soon open.
“The trend nationally is away from brick-and-mortar stores,” The Mills Outlet Group mentioned Big Lots and TJ Maxx as examples of retailers that have continued to be successful in a marketplace now dominated by Amazon and other online retailers. said, “but there are still stores that are thriving.”

The Mills Outlet Group expects the store will appeal to bargain hunters.
“We’ll be able to offer some deals that you might not be able to find online,” they said.
The the Mills Outlet Group said the mall’s location is another asset.
“I want to personally thank Anthony Rizzo, Javy Báez and Kris Bryant. Together they played critical roles for one of the most successful runs in Chicago Cubs history. They each secured a place in the hearts of Cubs fans everywhere. While their days taking the field together as Cubs have come to an end, they gave us memories we will hold forever.
I also wish to acknowledge Jed and his team for making the tough decisions necessary to build the next great Cubs team.”
Anthony Rizzo is making his debut with the New York Yankees tonight, and while I wish him nothing but instant and tremendous success, here’s the reality: it’s a little tough to see him in the Yankees gear. And it’s tough to see him hit his first homer, in a tie game, to give the Yankees the lead.
It’s a big moment with a team that is no longer the Cubs:
Báez, a two-time All-Star with the Cubs and a member of the 2016 World Series championship-winning squad, has a .248 batting average with 22 home runs and 65 RBI’s in 361 plate appearances this season.
The Mets will team him up with fellow Puerto Rican All-Star Francisco Lindor, giving themselves a potent mix of talent up the middle of the diamond.
One of the most beloved players in the history of the Chicago Cubs is likely on the move, as multiple reports have indicated that first baseman Anthony Rizzo is close to being traded to the New York Yankees.
According to YES Network’s Jack Curry, the Yankees are “moving closer” to acquiring Rizzo:
