Caldors opens 123rd store at Melville Mall on LI

Caldor, the discount department store chain, plans to open its 123rd store in the Melville Mall on Route 110 in Melville, New York, in August.

Located in what was formerly the TSS Mall, the TSS space has been subdivided and is to be completely renovated. Caldor will occupy 80,000 square feet at the northern end of the mall for a new store.

Major changes to the interior of the Caldor space, which is directly adjacent to the mall, are currently underway. Caldor will use the existing front entrance, accessible from the parking lot, and the existing loading dock. The store also has an entrance within the mall.

RAL Design Associates and Affiliates, headquartered in Hempstead, New York, served as architects and engineers. The project induded an entirely new layout of the interior space, adaptation of Caldor's interior flxture plan to the requirements of the space, working drawings, and an energy management plan calling for a completely new heating and air conditioning system.

According to Jeffrey Gansberg of Solal Realty, Yonkers, New York, owners of the Melville Mall, the system formerly heated and cool the space electrically is being replaced by a natural gas system. A new "energy management package" allows for the systematic step-up of power to peak levels in both lighting and environmental systems to smooth out demands on the system.

"Our estimates show that we will achieve a 33 percent savings in energy costs over those incurred with the older system," according to Gansberg. "To operate profitably in today's competitive retailing environment, energy savings are essential in keeping overhead costs from getting out of control," Gansberg said.
