Remodeling work is underway to prepare a Vestal Parkway site for a couple of retailers entering the Binghamton market.

The renovations are taking place at the Parkway Plaza which is located west of Jensen Road.

The two new stores will occupy space that had been used for the past year as a Dick's Sporting Goods warehouse outlet.

California-based Ross Dress for Less is one of the stores planning to open at the Vestal site. The company bills itself as "the nation's largest off-price retail chain." Its website boasts that it operates "no frill" stores with no decorations, window displays or fancy fixtures.

Boot Barn, which is also headquartered in California, will operate the other store in a portion of the Parkway Plaza space. It claims to be "the largest western and work wear retailer" in the United States.

Ross Stores and Boot Barn representatives did not return calls for information about when the Parkway Plaza locations are expected to open.

Meanwhile, preparations continue at the new Vestal location of the Dick's Sporting Goods Warehouse Sale store. The company website now indicates the grand opening is slated for October 13.
