It will have more than 5,000 square feet of selling floor, which will allow the tactical outfitter to expand its inventory of footwear, clothing and military surplus supplies, said  Jeff Goldsmith, in a Facebook video.

Goldsmith plans to update the construction transformation as the project continues.
