Doug and Ronna Sue Stubbs have purchased Curves for Women in the Foothills, 11274 S. Fortuna Road, Suite B5-6, in the Pioneer Shopping Center.
The decision came about after Doug had unexpected triple bypass surgery a year ago, leading the couple to make health and fitness everyday words in their household. After prayerful consideration, they contacted the former owner and purchased the business that had been on the market for some time.

The incorrect address was reported in last Sunday's Comings and Goings regarding Teresa Nunnaley, a licensed massage therapist, joining Amare Rejuve Medical Day Spa and Laser. The correct address for the recently opened salon is 2191 S. 4th Ave., Suite A.
I was a little directionally challenged on that one — there is no West 4th Avenue in Yuma. Sorry about the error.
