SCHEELS, an employee-owned All Sports retailer, is excited to bring its first location to Arizona, opening Fall of 2023 in Chandler. The new shopping destination is planned for the Chandler Fashion Center after a full renovation and expansion of a vacant building, and will feature 220KSF of premium retail adventure for the entire family.
The new Arizona SCHEELS will be home to entertainment attractions, specialty shops and boutiques. This includes 75 specialty shops staffed by trained experts who focus on helping customers achieve their goals. The one-of-a-kind retail experience will attract sports fans, outdoor enthusiasts and customers seeking a wide variety of fashion, footwear and home decor.
The Arizona SCHEELS will feature more than just retail, with a variety of fun, family-friendly attractions. These include a 16,000-gallon saltwater aquarium with more than 600 fish, a wildlife mountain, and Fuzziwig’s Candy Shop. Shoppers will have the opportunity to enjoy interactive arcade games and sports simulators, and specialty treats at Ginna’s Cafe, a restaurant serving gourmet soups and sandwiches, homemade fudge and specialty coffee.
The Chandler store will employ approximately 400 associates, all employee-owners.
The Arizona SCHEELS will be the company’s 31st location, with 29 existing stores and one scheduled to open this fall in Missoula, Montana. (Source)
