MASSENA — While construction for a Dick’s Sporting Goods store at St. Lawrence Centre was expected to begin before now, mall officials said the store is still coming to the mall and should be open next year.

“We have a signed lease,” St. Lawrence Centre Marketing Manager Ronald J. Patnode said. “Dick’s Sporting Goods is still on track to open in 2014.”

Mr. Patnode said there are several things going on behind the scenes, with many of them taking longer than anticipated.

Some of those things include architectural work and engineering.

“Unfortunately these behind-the-scenes things are taking longer than we had originally anticipated,” Mr. Patnode said. “There’s a host of things that have to be taken care of, some you wouldn’t even think about.”

A news release from the mall in May announced that the sporting goods giant would be opening a Massena store in the spring of 2014.

With Mr. Patnode estimating approximately 20 weeks of construction before the opening, a spring opening is still a possibility.
