Schimenti managing open store remodel/fit out for Dick’s Sporting Goods


Schimenti Construction has begun work on Dick's Sporting Goods' store in Melville, New York, managing an open store remodel/tenant fit-out of the approximately 95,000-sq.-ft. space.

Schimenti will remodel the existing Dick’s store while simultaneously performing a tenant fit-out of a previous Kohl's Department store. The wall between the two stores eventually will be opened to create one retail environment featuring Dick’s and its Field & Stream retail format. The project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2016.

Schimenti project manager John Taberna noted that a different mind set is required for an open store remodel.

"We have to think differently in a remodel situation versus a new construction project,” he explained. “Working in an existing store sometimes requires night work, a focus on cleanliness, superior planning and coordination with store operations staff, and putting the store back to together after every shift."

The building will include a detailed entry utilizing reclaimed wood shipped from Austria, construction of large loading dock and new vestibule, and signature features unique to a concept store setting.
