I’m in Lake Tahoe right now, celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary with my beautiful wife. We took a trip to Reno today to do some shopping and I visited a sports store like none other that I’ve been to before. It’s like the Fry’s Electronics of sports stores (or for you South Park fans, it’s like the Casa Bonita of sports stores).
The name of the store is Scheels and is located in Sparks. The 2-story store has almost 300,000 sq feet and has all sorts of stuff. In the middle of the store there’s even a full-size ferris wheel. Not sure why this is here. Maybe because their first store was in Minnesota so they are trying to be like the Great Mall of America which has an amusement park in the middle of the mall. Their other 22 stores are in the mid-west so we’ll see if they continue to expand West and open a store in California some day.
