Modell’s Sporting Goods plan is to open 10 locations spanning 5,000 and 8,000 square feet across New York City, according to The Real Deal.

 “The days of the 15,000 square foot store in the boroughs, are just not there,” Mitchell Modell, the retailer’s chief executive, told the publication. “We want to test it out and see if it works.”

Compass has been retained to secure locations. Modell’s earlier this year had indicated it was exploring opening smaller stores as part of overall moves to find new revenue streams for growth.
