Work on new Roch, Scheels store in high gear

The transformation and expansion of the former Sears store into a new Scheels All Sports complex at Rochester is moving at a good clip.

The first pic is from this morning. The 01042014scheelsatapachesecond one is from March 19.

Fargo, N.D.-based Scheels estimates that it will be ready to open in early April 2015. The planned 140,000-square foot store will be larger than the 120,000-square-foot Scheels in Mankato.

It's expected to employ between 120 to 180.

Sears closed in January. The development for the expanded 19032014scheelsatapachestore also includes Apache Mall adding 9,000-square-foot restaurant site on the east side of the city water tower. 

There's no word yet on what restaurant might be planned for that site.

Scheelsmap1"It will still have a fudge and coffee bar and a mini bowling alley. It will carry fashion clothing and shoes for women and men as well as athletic clothing and shoes for men and women. That's all in addition to our the entire hard line of sporting goods," said Scheels' Jason Loney.

This will be the sporting goods chain's 25th store and its fifth in Minnesota.
