The sign on the door at Oceanside Wellness & Sport blames a financial crisis in south Jersey for Monday's abrupt closure.

The Egg Harbor Township gym was one of three businesses still operating in the Cardiff Shopping Center. Now only Big Lots and Forman Mills remain and the depressing sight of empty storefronts are a sad reminder of better times for the center.

A sign on the door at Oceanside Wellness blames an economic crisis in South Jersey, but disgruntled gym members reacting to the sudden closing on Facebook questioned why the club continued to take advance payments if they planned to close and why no advance notice was given of the closing.
