According to the Chronicle Herald, all the L.A. Weight Loss Atlantic Canadian franchise centers are closing Dec. 5, 2008. Instead, they will offer a phone-counseling service called “LA on the Go” to their stranded members. According to the Chronicle-Herald:
David Shneer, president and CEO of LAWL Maritimes Inc., said in an email Tuesday that the company, which operates LA Weight Loss Centres in Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford and Sydney, is changing its business model. “Over the weekend, we decided for two main reasons that we cannot continue to operate the centre-based business,” he said. “So we have informed our centres that we are going to close.”

Mr. Shneer… said LA Weight Loss clients have the option of continuing with the company’s LA On the Go program or requesting a refund. The LA On the Go program was designed for clients who could not visit the centres, he said. “It provides them with weekly one-on-one counselling but just over the phone instead of in the centre,” he said. “They also still have the same access to optional products.”
