DEKALB JUNCTION — A sport recreational vehicle sales and service shop is expected to open at the beginning of March on Route 11 in DeKalb.

Baker Power Sports, near Route 812, will offer pre-owned motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles, and also will service them. A franchise might open down the line, said owner Robert B. Baker, Hermon.

“It should be a fantastic location,” he said.

The property was last a tractor restoration store, so it already is set up for a garage and showroom.

“We’ve done a full renovation,” Mr. Baker said.

He said he planned to offer affordable used equipment.

“That’s a goal,” he said.

The store initially will employ three people. Mr. Baker previously managed Nesco in Evans Mills and worked for Blevins Bros. in Ogdensburg.

“I do enjoy riding and working on the machines,” he said. “There is a passion behind it.”

DeKalb Supervisor John M. Frary welcomed Baker Power Sports to the town.

“I believe it’s something the area needs. He’s been remodeling the store,” he said. “For a young guy, he has well-thought-out plans.”

The St. Lawrence County Planning Board had no issues with the planned operation. The site already has an entrance onto Route 11.

“It’s a pretty straight shot there, with plenty of room for a couple of cars,” Planning Deputy Director Jason C. Pfotenhauer said.
