Gym owner granted extension to answer AG complaint

Gold's Gym in North Providence closed abruptly in April.

The owner of closed gym in North Providence was given an extension to respond to a complaint served by the Rhode Island attorney general, a spokeswoman for the office said Monday.

Gold's Gym closed with no warning in April.

An attorney for owner David Walker is out of state and was given a court-approved extension to answer the complaint when he returns.

Customers have complained that Walker never paid back customers who wanted a refund and instead suggested they use his Warwick gym.

But that gym was sold in May, and the new owner began to charge Gold's customers maintenance fees.
