Lowe's Submits Site Plan for Commack Store

Home improvement chain plans to build 100,000 square foot store at former site of Commack Multiplex, reports Newsday.

Lowe's submitted a revised plan to build a store at the site Tuesday, after about the company's expansion in Commack.

Newsday reports the home improvement retailer submitted a plan to construct a building of more than 100,000 square feet on the vacant property, calling it a "major step" in the company's committment to building the new store. Lowe's also paid a $50,000 site-plan fee.

Smithtown Town Planning Director Frank DeRubeis said the payment of the fee erases any uncertainty over Lowe's plans to build in Commack.

“That’s a good sign because it shows that they’re serious,” DeRubeis said.

Lowe's announced its plans to buy the Commack Multiplex for $13 million as part of a 20-acre parcel in May 2010. But the company’s plans became uncertain last fall when it a store in Huntington Station and announced plans to close 20 underperforming stores in 15 states.
