Rumors have persisted since the sporting goods store opened that they were soon going to be closing their doors.
Steve Luker, the managing partner for Legacy Pointe – which is the development alongside the newer MacArthur Avenue extension where Scheels is located – says the rumors are ridiculous and he doesn’t know where they originated.
The rumors were so persistent that even the bank who handles Scheels & even their lawyers wondered if the rumors were true.
Local spokesperson for Scheels – Amy Beadle confirmed that the rumors are false.
Scheels opened in 2011 and has a 20-year lease. Luker jokingly says;
For people who say it’s closing, talk to me in another 15 years.
