COLORADO SPRINGS – Sporting goods store SCHEELS is breaking ground on a new store in Colorado Springs. This ceremony is being held Wednesday afternoon at the Interquest Marketplace on the corner of Federal Drive and New Life Drive.
The store will feature 220,000 square feet of retail space when it opens in April 2021. It will also have 75 specialty shops, top brand name wear and even a 65-foot Ferris Wheel all under one roof.
The Johnstown SCHEELS location opened in September 2017 and this new Colorado Springs store will be similar in layout with jobs coming for more than 350 associates.
The groundbreaking event will include donations to three area community groups and a Soldier
Ride to bring awareness to the Wounded Warrior Project.
SCHEELS is a 27-store operation with stores in 12 states including North Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Nevada, Illinois, Utah, Kansas, and Colorado.
