Kosama plans to open in late November or early December.
A new workout studio is coming to Woodbury. Kosama is set to open in late November or early December in the former Blockbuster space at 1960 Donegal Drive (off Valley Creek Road). The studio features “small-group, personal-training, boot-camp style” sessions, said Jodi Sussner, director of programming. Kosama offers workouts that include kettle bells, bands, bars, yoga and kickboxing, she said.

There are 28 Kosama studios in several states, Sussner said. Check out the Kosama website for more information and rates. The opening of Kosama will fill the former Blockbuster space.

Staff of seven laid off; video store will be in liquidation through March.
Four days before Christmas, the seven staff members of Woodbury’s Blockbuster store found out they would soon be out of jobs and that they had five days to prepare the store for liquidation. Christmas Day was the last day to rent videos and games at the store, which will be open until March 13, with discounts on all products increasing each week as the closure date approaches. DVDs are currently being sold for $9.99, games and new retail items are 10 percent off and Blu-ray discs are 15 percent off. “The store did good, but the rent was just too high,” said an employee who wished to remain anonymous to protect their job through March. The store’s two managers received small severance packages, but regular employees did not.
