Construction Underway at Dick's Sporting Goods

A worker at the location says work should be complete by mid August.

Commack will soon have a commercial vacancy filled as the former home to Pathmark will become the new home to Dick's Sporting Goods.

A sign on the marquee leading into the shopping center reads the store is set to open in Fall 2012. A construction worker at the store, located at 6070 Jericho Turnpike, just east of the East Northport border, said work should be completed by mid August.

The worker said work on the building's interior began in late May.

Dick's would be competing with two other sports merchandise chain stores in the area – Sports Authority located at and  Modell's located at .

when the chain announced that Commack's location would be one of 32 to be closed after A&P, owner of numerous Pathmark stores, filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

The Commack and Dix Hill Pathmark's were run down when we moved into the area 20 years ago. And the Waldbaums were not much better for the most part. We had one that looked nice but always had very high prices and poor selection. My favorite thing about Waldbaums; we would go in looking for a certain chocolate ice cream (these days Turkey Hill Philly Style) because it has no fillers, tree sap,etc. Never could find it at Waldbaums. One day we asked. We were told that the ice cream buyer hated chocolate.

Excuses!! .. oh and I hated that Waldbaums! But I miss Arcadia Gardens (we spent our sundays looking at all their flowers).

I think the worst thing it will do is be an eye sore. Look at the one by the mall! Yikes!

As far as I know the first plans are "approved" and now they are on step two. Like a current issue with King Kullen (Lake ave), it could take 3 years just for anything to really get finalized, not to say anything won't happen at all (ie, sevs 347).
