Along with its Big Apple Music store, plans for a Jreck Subs superstore are underway at a 10,500-square-foot retail plaza being built off Route 11 in the town of LeRay.
The Jreck Subs superstore will occupy 3,000 square feet at the plaza outside Fort Drums north gate.
The plaza is owned by Watertown businessman Robert D. Ferris, who also owns Big Apple Music in Watertown. The franchise will be owned locally, but Mr. Ferris could not disclose the owners name Wednesday.
Distinct from other Jreck Subs locations, the superstore will feature an expanded menu that includes pizza and soft-serve ice cream, Jreck Subs Director of Franchising Gary Baker said in a news release. Our new superstores offer the best of their favorite items plus a new variety of choices all in one location, Mr. Baker said.
The Big Apple store will include merchandise that is offered at its Arsenal Street location, including audio equipment, remote vehicle starters, alarms, LED lighting and cruise controls. An expanded line of customized services for all vehicle types will be offered.
Mr. Ferris said he expects the combination of Big Apple Music and Jreck Subs will lure customers to the plaza.
Its going to help both of us, and were going to be working to help other businesses, he said.
Mr. Ferris is looking for other commercial tenants to fill the remaining 4,000 square feet of retail space at the plaza, which is being built by Lunco Corp. of West Carthage.
A preliminary opening of the plazas Big Apple Music is expected in June, with a grand opening set for July, Mr. Ferris said.
