Lots of activity at the new Scheels All Sports mega-store site at Rochester's Apache Mall this balmy "fall" morning.
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.
In addition to sporting goods, its features will include a fudge and coffee bar and a mini bowling alley.
The development for the expanded store 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.
