A northern Michigan sporting goods store is expanding in Gaylord Michigan and construction will start in the last few weeks of August.
Jay's Sporting Goods closed a deal on Wednesday purchasing the old Kmart building on S. Otsego Rd.
The new building will be more than 90,000 square feet which is a significant increase from their current building which is 40,000 square feet.
"In a 40,000 square foot store we just can't carry all the same stuff that our customers would expect us to have, so it's going to give us an opportunity to offer a much larger broader selection a little but deeper and have the storage all under one roof," says Store Director Mark Copland.
Jay's Sporting Goods store wants to be open before June 2015.
