Ever since it closed last year, the Latham community has been excited to find out what will go in the giant space that WalMart left behind when it moved across Route 7 into the brand new shopping center where Latham Mall used to be, The Shoppes at Latham Circle.

Well, now we know! In the upcoming weeks, that space will become a Field & Stream store. It will be adjacent to a new Dick's store.

The Field & Stream store, operated by Dick’s, carries hunting, fishing and camping gear. The current Dick's in Latham Farms will move once construction is complete.

Now, we'll have to wait to see what will go in the vacancy that Dick's will be leaving behind!

News of the new Field & Stream store is exciting for me, as a Latham resident.  I'm really excited to have so many new shopping options so close to home.
