Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove is about to get a wider selection of athletic gear, as shoe store Skechers is set to open a new store there.
A mall spokesperson said the 2,657-square-foot store, located across from the Apple store, will open sometime this week.
Skechers replaces Violets Blue, which is relocating to a different location within the mall. The mall already includes athletic shoe stores such as Finish Line, Foot Locker and Footaction USA.
The Manhattan Beach, Calif.-based chain is a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange (SKX). According to the company's website, it has close to 900 stores worldwide. Elsewhere on Long Island, Skechers operates an outlet store at Deer Park's Tanger Outlets and Garden City's Roosevelt Mall.
