Scheels - The history
In 1902, Scheels started as a general merchandise and hardware store in Sabin, Minnesota. Frederick A. Scheel who was a German immigrant used the $300 he earned from his first harvest of potatoes as the down payment on the first Scheels, which was a hardware store.
In 1954, Scheels began to add a small selection of sporting goods to its stores. Since its establishment, Scheels opened in surrounding communities, including Fargo, North Dakota, where the corporate office and the second-largest all-sports store in the world are now located. In 1989, Scheels' first all-sports superstore opened in Grand Forks, North Dakota. In 2014, the store relocated to Columbia Mall.
CEO Steve M. Scheel, great-great-grandson of Frederick A. Scheel, oversees the company of over 6,000 associates. His father, Steve D. Scheel, is the Chairman of the Board.
Scheels headquarter is located in Fargo, North Dakota, together with two stores, one traditional all-sports store, and a store centering on home and hardware store that is now in the old sports store after being in its University Drive location since 1962. All-sports stores are also located in Grand Forks, Bismarck, and Minot. Stores can also be found in Rapid City and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The company is also located in Appleton and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. A new Scheels location opened in Springfield, Illinois On June 25, 2011. The Sandy, Utah, store was opened on September 29, 2012.
On Dec. 3, 2012, Scheels declared that it would be opening the company's new flagship store in Overland Park, Kansas, in Corbin Park outdoor retail village. The store would be a 222,000-square-foot, two-story building. CEO Steve Scheel stated that he had massive plans for the interior of the store. Customers will enter the store following a 16,000-gallon aquarium, complete with a coral reef and scuba divers to feed the fish daily. A 65-foot, 16-car Ferris wheel also will be in the store, in addition to sports simulators and a walk of U.S. presidents. Scheels inaugurated its new flagship store in Overland Park, Kansas, on June 27, 2015.
On June 3, 2015, Scheels declared plans to open its next store in Johnstown, Colorado on September 30, 2017.
