Winner: SCHEELS

Location: Fargo and Moorhead with 27 stores nation-wide and online.

SCHEELS is one of the largest sporting goods stores in America, combined with over 115 years of experience and a superior quality of customer service, it's no wonder SCHEELS has won Best Sporting Goods/Outdoors Store in the Red River Valley for 2019.

"SCHEELS focuses on fun," said Caryn Olson, event and social media leader for Fargo SCHEELS. "The definition of fun is different for everyone so we really strive to provide diverse entertainment options for our customers. That’s why you see Ferris Wheels, arcade games, sports simulators, archery lanes, casual trendy fashions or simply relaxing with a sweet treat and a great cup of coffee."

Through that time, energy and resources, SCHEELS has made a name for itself in every community it calls home — especially the FM community.

"We are truly grateful for the strong support we receive in this community," Olson said. "Giving back has been at the center of SCHEELS culture for years. We have come a long way since first store in 1902, but what was most important then is still the most important: take care of the customer. We work vigorously to maintain the same level of customer service and culture we had with one single store in Sabin as we do now with over 6,000 associates, in 27 stores and 13 states."
