Field & Stream Store to Convert to Public Lands Brand

The Field & Stream store in Melville will become a  Public Lands store on Oct. 21.

Part of the Dick’s Sporting Goods company, the Public Lands brand emphasizes outdoor sports and activities, while de-emphasizing hunting.

As part of the rebranding, the store will participate in Out&Back, a program to accept and sell used outdoor gear, with trade-ins in exchange for cash or a gift card. In addition to items such as  outerwear, tents, backpacks, and other soft goods, the store will also take skis and snowboards from Burton, Atomic, Bent Metal, Blizzard Tecnica, GNU, Nordica, and more.

The Public Lands store plans several days of previews before its grand opening.

Out&Back and Dick’s said they will continue to donate 1 percent of the value of offers given to sellers to 1% For The Planet, a charitable non-profit dedicated to funding diverse environmental organizations.
