Johnny’s Fit Club, Vector Christian Center and an undisclosed general merchandise retailer will be the first three tenants for the former Kmart building at 10477 Fairview Avenue that has stood empty since Big K pulled out in March.

They will fill three 12,000-square-foot spaces in the 84,000-square-foot structure.

“We can have seven 12,000-square-foot tenants or any combination (of square footages),” said Bob Mitchell, retail specialist at Thornton Oliver Keller Commercial Real Estate. “Everybody has a front and back door. Everybody gets one fully bay, front to back, 60-by-200 feet.”

Johnny’s Fit Club will open its third Treasure Valley fitness center in the Kmart. The other two are on Federal way next to Fred Meyer and at Overland and Five Mile Roads.

Salt Lake City-based Maverik Inc. plans to build a Maverik service station and convenience store at the same corner as the Kmart property at Fairview and Five Mile Road.
