Dear Cornerstone Member,
Since the start of the pandemic, Cornerstone has been committed to communicating its operational and economic status to our members and staff in an honest and forthright manner. As with many businesses throughout our region, the pandemic has significantly impacted the Cornerstone family.
Unfortunately, the greatest financial toll has been taken at our Warrington club. Visits to the club have been a fraction of where they were pre-COVID and overall revenues are significantly below our operating costs. We do not expect this situation to change soon enough based on the limitations we are experiencing in our industry.
So, it is with great sadness that we announce the permanent closing of the Warrington Health/Fitness Club as well as The Spa at Cornerstone effective September 5, 2020.
With a heartfelt understanding of the impact this will have on our Warrington members, Spa Clients and staff, this is truly one of the most difficult decisions we’ve had to make since Cornerstone’s inception in 1995. The Cornerstone locations at Doylestown and New Hope are owned by entities that are separate and apart from Warrington. Please be assured that Cornerstone is not closing its Doylestown and New Hope facilities. Any further attempts to sustain Warrington would put the other clubs in financial peril.
It is our sincere hope to retain as many of our Warrington and Spa staff as possible with opportunities at our other locations. Additionally, we invite our Warrington members to consider continuing their membership at Cornerstone Doylestown or New Hope. All current rates will be honored, and our Service Desk staff can assist Warrington members interested in continuing their membership. Depending on your health insurance plan, the Silver Sneakers Program may also be a membership option for you at either club.
We understand that you will have many questions including the status of your membership. Please know that Warrington members were NOT billed for the month of September. As an accommodation to our Warrington members, purchased services such as personal training, Tribe, virtual programs (e.g. – Parkinson’s) and massage can be used at our other locations.
As mentioned, we are fully committed to supporting our members and entire staff through this transition. Many staff will have the opportunity to continue serving our members in Doylestown and New Hope. If you have specific questions, please CLICK HERE for more information. You are also welcome to call or drop by the service desk in Doylestown or New Hope at any time.
We will all get through this stronger and better. Thank you for being part of the Cornerstone family.
