Grocery store proposed, 3 other businesses coming soon at South Mall | Eat, Sip, Shop

SALISBURY TWP., Pa. – Three businesses are coming soon to the South Mall, and a grocery store may also be joining the Salisbury Township shopping center down the line.

SuperSets, which promises to help customers “get the body you deserve,” is expected to open in March in a 19,000-square-foot space at the back of the mall, 3300 Lehigh St., owner Ed Frack said.

“We’re getting into the tail end of things,” Frack said. “So, we’re anticipating to be open within the next 3-5 weeks.”

Frack opened the first SuperSets gym in October 2019 at 2450 Schoenersville Road in Hanover Township, Lehigh County, before adding a second location in 2021 at 2429 Nazareth Road in Palmer Township.

The South Mall location, occupying a renovated space that previously housed Full Circle Training, will feature state-of-the-art workout equipment and free weights, personal training services and showers and lockers.


SuperSets is planning to open a third gym in the next 3-5 weeks at the South Mall in Salisbury Township. Pictured is the SuperSets location in Palmer Township. 

The new gym also will feature a supplement shop and nutritionist.

“My goal is to create a ‘one stop shop’ for a better quality of life including: fitness, nutrition, supplementation, TRT and more!” Frack states on the business’ website.

Additionally, Ohana WonderTown Playground, a multi-level children’s recreational facility, is expected to open in April, owner Yadira Disla said.

The playground, with blue- and yellow-checkered flooring, will feature climbing apparatus, sliding boards (twisty and regular), bridges, tunnels, a four-seat merry-go-round and more.

“We’re going to have a ball pit, some slides and some sensory items that kids can touch,” Disla said. “There’s going to be open play, and we’re also going to offer times for kids’ birthday parties and private events.”

The 3,200-square-foot facility will be geared
