Additional Information

As an existing tenant in the Caruth Plaza Mall,  Sports Authority needed additional space to take advantage of their growing business at that location.  When the adjacent unit became available the company knew they needed to take advantage of the opportunity but also knew that the existing ceiling was 3′ lower than the clear height standards for Sports Authority.

With Rooflifters, the retailer was able to acquire the unit next door and modify it to meet their interior ceiling height requirements.

Throughout this modification process, a large portion of the existing Sports Authority maintained normal business operations.
