A local gym that was geared toward kids with special needs will close its doors for good this month. Ring Around the Spectrum opened a little over two years ago and was a special place for children of all ages with Autism to go and have fun. Now the owners say they will be closing its doors at the end of January.

It was a fifty-one hundred square foot sensory gym that was geared toward children that had special needs and sensory issues. Ring Around the Spectrum also had occupational therapist approved equipment and toys for children to have fun with.

According to News Channel 13, the owners say they can't keep the doors open any longer. The owners explain on The Ring Around the Spectrum Facebook page:

With continually rising costs that we refuse to pass on to you, it has become near impossible to remain open in the capacity that benefits the community properly. We already cut staffing and hours to try to stay ahead of it, but frankly this state is just not small business friendly.

They go on to say that they will be running normal operations through January 31st. Ring Around the Spectrum will honor gift certificates and memberships until then.
