Have you heard the buzz going around Missoula? Everybody is getting excited for the new SCHEELS store to officially open on Saturday (10/2) at Southgate Mall! It's been a fun few months as we've started to see details of what will be included in the shopping experience at SCHEELS. If you haven't been following along, the store will have a mini bowling lane, an arcade, a bike shop, a 10-foot-tall Sasquatch to greet you at the door, a giant Monte made from thousands of lego pieces, hunting trophies on display from local residents, multiple areas to test equipment before purchasing, and more.

Big fun planned for the SCHEELS Grand Opening

It seems like we've been talking about the new store for so long, it's hard to believe that opening day is almost here! Join the party at SCHEELS on Saturday morning from 7 AM to 9 AM as they throw their Grand Opening Celebration. Check out food trucks, giveaways, and entertainment before they officially open for business at 9 AM. Part of the fun includes appearances from Monte, the Griz Marching Band, Griz Spirit Squad, prizes to win, and axe throwing with Lookout Throwing Co. We'll be there for the fun as we broadcast live for the event!
