Scheels announced plans to open its first All Sports store in Tulsa, OK in Fall 2024. The 240,000-square-foot location is planned for the Woodland Hills.
“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,” said Scheels CEO Steve M. Scheel. “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.”
The retailer said the store will stock more than one million pieces of inventory in its 75 specialty shops. Like other Scheels locations, the store will also feature a 45-foot Ferris Wheel, a 16,000-gallon saltwater aquarium, a wildlife mountain, and Fuzziwig’s Candy Shop.
“This is an incredible win for Tulsa and I am very excited to have Scheels, a one-of-a-kind store, come to our city,” Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum said. “When you think about the jobs this will create and the people who will be coming from all across the region to visit our city because of Scheels, it’s just an incredible testament to the teamwork that went into making this happen. I want to thank PartnerTulsa for helping Scheels find a way to expand their business into our state – and I want to thank Simon Property Group for their persistence in ensuring that whatever went into the former Sears space was something that would be a major win for Tulsa and for the 71st and Memorial area.”
“Scheels is an exciting and dynamic, family-friendly brand, and is exactly what Simon looks to bring in new concepts,” said Mark Silvestri, Simon’s President of Development. “Simon is very excited to welcome Scheels to Woodland Hills Mall and the entire region.”
This is the retailer’s 34th U.S. location, with 30 existing stores and three others scheduled to open during the next two years.
