BrandsMart USA Plans Small-Format Store

5/06/2010 10:20:29 AM Eastern

- BrandsMart USA,
the regional electronics and appliance discount chain, will open its first
small-format store next fall.

According to a
report in the Miami
, the family-held retailer will occupy a former Linens'N Things
storefront in the Dadeland Mall, here.

The two-story, 44,500-square-foot
location is about half the size of BrandsMart's typical octagonal megastores,
which feature three floors of CE, appliances and housewares.

President Mike
Perlman said the company had long coveted the heavily- trafficked Dadeland
area, but was precluded by the space requirements of BrandsMart's stores and
parking lots, which typically occupy 13 acres per location.

The new store, the
NATM dealer's 10th, will sacrifice onsite warehouse space but will still be
larger than most competitors, Perlman told the Herald.
