I recently got a sneak peek inside the new Scheels that is opening, on September 29th, in Sandy, Utah. At first I had no idea what to expect. I had been watching this giant building go up for over a year now. It was taunting me on my weekly trips to Costco and I had to learn more.
Scheels is so much more than just your average sporting goods store. There are clothes, shoes, BEARS, a giant ferris wheel, and a fish tank too. And when I say clothes and shoes I don’t just mean camoflauge vests and show shoes. (Sorry if that is your everyday attire… Mine is yoga pants and a holy t-shirt. I don’t judge… much.) They have actual fashionable clothes that you could wear in your daily life. In fact Scheels is about a gajillion shops all in one giant store. (And by a gajillion I actually mean 85… but in my world that is totally a gajillion.
See??? A cute little bear family with blue painters tape to protect their little feeties (hey… it’s my site and if I say feeties is a word… it’s totally a word). I have a slight obsession with bears. Just ask every bear that ever existed in Yellowstone. I may totally break that whole “stay 100 yards away from the bears” rule.
I am happy to report that Hoffy the dog would approve of the pet section at Scheels. It’s fully stock with balls, balls, and more balls. I’m pretty sure she could have those all shoved under the couch in 11 minutes flat. I forgot to see if they have unicorn grooming supplies. But I am sure they do… Who wouldn’t have those?
And no self respecting store this epic in nature would be caught dead without an equally as awesome fish tank. I’m a sucker for fish… What can I say?
There is so much to do and see at Scheel’s I can’t really fit it all into one post. One area I can’t wait to take Brian back to is the gun and rifle section. It wasn’t fully set up when I toured the facility but it appeared to be one of the most expansive one’s I have seen. And maybe I can finally get that pearl handled revolver I’ve been needing.
The grand opening of Scheels in Sandy, Utah on September 29th is kicking off with a bang. Doors open at 9 am but they are having a grand PRE-opening in their parking lot from 5-9am. Just a few of the festivities on tap are:
Video game wars on a GIANT screen.
Meet your favorite mascots
- And performances by The Green Man Group and The Band Hedley
And if you don’t have a Scheels near you… Don’t worry. Just reach them on the web:
