Over the last year there have been posts bashing the big box sporting goods stores around the metro and for good reason, they are all terrible. I got a gift card for Scheels and being it is 45 minutes from my house it has taken me awhile to get over there. I finally went on Saturday with my son and was very impressed. It is massive which would be the only detractor. However it was nice to finally see a store with stocked shelves. I went in just to look around and check out some products I was checking online and ended up walking out with 4 items just because they actually had stock. Cabela’s and Fleet farm need to take notice. I still prefer the small shops by my house Joe’s, Capra’s and Thorne Bros, but good job Scheels.
Also, they actually had enough people working the cash registers that it there was no wait despite the store being packed.
