FARGO — Scheels has announced it will open its first All Sports store in Oklahoma in the fall of 2024.

The 240,000-square-foot store is planned for the Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa after a full demolition and expansion of an existing space. The store will be the company’s 34th location, with 30 existing stores and three others scheduled to open during the next two years. It is expected to employ more than 450 associates.

The Tulsa Scheels will stock more than one million pieces of inventory throughout 75 specialty shops, and include a 45-foot Ferris Wheel, 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 coffee.

In a statement, CEO Steve M. Scheel thanked city leaders and Simon Property Group for helping bring the project to fruition.

“After months of working with local leadership, we are thrilled to announce our first store coming to Oklahoma. We are excited to join the Woodlands Hills Mall in Tulsa, and are grateful for the excitement shown by the community,” Scheel said. “We want to thank city leadership, as well as the Simon team, for all of the hard work bringing this project to life. We look forward to working together through the building process, and cannot wait to begin serving the people of Oklahoma when we open our doors in Tulsa in the Fall of 2024.”
