Petrolia business will close its storefront for good because of COVID-19


The economic affects of the shutdown to slow the spread of COVID-19 are having permanent affects on Petrolia’s downtown.

The owner of Circle Studios is shutting the physical storefront because of COVID-19.

Brigitte Taylor made the announcement in a newsletter to her members Friday.

“With business closed, no relief and still no unforeseeable lift in the next coming months, for close proximity meeting space we cannot financially continue to hold onto the physical spaces of Circle Studio,” writes Taylor.

Circle Studio operated out of two downtown storefronts offering group fitness sessions to its members including yoga, pilates and pound programs run by community instructors.

Taylor says they will be selling the studio’s equipment.

Taylor says she will still have an online presence with her classes on Circle @ Home and sell boutique items online as well.
