Three acres of potatoes were the seed for the first Scheels store in 1902. Frederick A. Scheel, a German immigrant, used the $300 he earned from that first harvest of potatoes as the down payment on the first Scheels, a small hardware and general merchandise store in Sabin, Minnesota.
Over the years, Scheels has opened 24 locations in 10 different states, including the largest all-sports store in the world in Reno-Sparks, Nevada. Scheels carries a large selection of products, sportswear and footwear, including a number of top brands in the sporting goods industry like Nike, The North Face, Under Armour, Columbia, ASICS and adidas. Scheels also has a wide selection of hunting apparel, fishing supplies, and fashion accessories with brands like Scheels Outfitters, Remington, Berkley, Rapala, Nikon, Hurley, Silver Jeans, and Billabong.
