Default Scheels?

Passed by a Scheels location in The Colony set to open April 2020 yesterday. Went to their website and was surprised to see that they offer bows from companies like Matthews and Hoyt, which you would never see in Cabelas/Bass Pro. Anyone have any experience with this store?

They are mainly all up north. Good place. My wife's folks live in Loveland, Colorado where they just built one. Massive store with lots of stuff. It's like a Cabelas + Academy, so it has hunting/fishing/camping type gear along with lots of other sports gear as well.

That particular store even has an indoor ferris wheel.

I was in the Scheels in Loveland, Colorado a couple of years ago. Think Cabela's on steroids with a circus included. Massive operation.

I cant wait until it gets here. I am not a Bass Pro fan and since they took over cabelas and basically turned it into a BPS I dont care for it either. Scheels will put a hurtin on them I think.

Seeing the responses and browsing their site, I have no doubt they'll be the "Go-to" place in the Metroplex. Pretty excited to check them out - I dread going to Cabelas/Bass Pro/Field and Stream because of the selection and staff.

I think most have that. The one in Billings, Montana has one and upstairs also had a two lane mini bowling alley. Pretty neat.

I like Scheels a lot. I was in Rapid City last week and stopped at the one there. They are kind of a cross between original Cabela’s and Academy but have high end hunting gear also. The one in Rapid has a couple of bowling lanes too.

It’s been many years since I’ve been in a store, talking 20 plus but did just order online from them.

Order some tackle. Get an email that items shipped. Package arrives and only part of my order is there. Check bank account no refund. Call CS and guys says oh yeah looks like we were out of the rest of your order. I ask if it will be backordered or my money refunded. “Oh yeah we won’t get anymore so I guess you need a refund?”



Says refund should appear in 2/3 days. A day later I get an email that says the rest of my order is shipping and it appears my account was charged again for the full amount. Checked bank account again and was never charged for initial order until the second email came out. . . . .

My head hurts just from typing that

Absolute great store. Had one in my home town back in North Dakota. Super excited to see them move south. Lol, I am currently working next door to the new Scheels at the new Andretti's, and I like to occasionally disappear and walk around Scheels. Not a whole lot to see as of now, but what I've seen, its going to be crazy huge.

I’m excited about this Scheels. Never heard of them until today. BPS and Cabelas in DFW kinda suck...so I’m stuck with Academy. Scheels seems to be a nice alternative. Gander in a Frisco was horrible.

I’ve stopped in the Salt Lake Scheels a few times over the years, and love it. Great store and great prices. Beats BPS and Cabelas for sure.

Looking forward to this. Cabelas and Basspro have have lost me. Going into the Allen Cabelas store is just depressing any more. Understaffed, undertrained, and poor inventory. You can tell the morale is low too. More a lifestyle store than a serious sporting goods store. I've got some points to spend. After that I'll be cancelling my credit card with them if Scheels is everything they say it is. Looks like Scheels has the same points system.
