I can't see why any health club for an "upwardly mobile, affluent clientele" with "disposable income" would want to locate in Rite Aid at Grant and El Camino. There aren't a whole lot of wealthy people living near there, and that location is a worn down and gritty.

They'd be far better off to look for more suitable locations, such as Los Altos or Menlo Park, close to where their proposed clientele live.
