NEW HARTFORD — A new tenant might be coming to the former Kmart Plaza, town officials said.

At Home, a home décor superstore, came Monday before the Planning Board for a preliminary site plan review and approval. At Home currently has two stores in the state, in Albany and Syracuse.

At Home did not return messages for comment.

“It will be nice to have the entire shopping center active,” said Town Supervisor Patrick Tyksinski.

Tyksinski said At Home — if approved — will take over the section of the main building that formerly housed Kmart.

Kmart closed in April after being a mainstay at the Commercial Drive location since November 1972. A liquidation sale took place before it closed.

Kmart took up 97,000 square feet of the 120,000-square-foot property and the store featured 40 departments.

Town officials still are searching for businesses to take over the other part of building, which used to house grocery chain Price Chopper. Price Chopper moved further down Commercial Drive almost 10 years ago.

“We do have a couple of things in the works,” said Town Councilman Paul Miscione.

Miscione will succeed Tyksinski as New Hartford town supervisor in January.

The Kmart Plaza also houses Chuck E. Cheese’s, Super Cuts and Sherwin-Williams Paint.
