Scheels is thrilled to be anchoring Legacy Pointe Town Center, located in the Land of Lincoln – Springfield, Illinois.

Springfield’s 220,000 square foot Scheels retail shopping experience showcases Illinois’ largest selection of sports, sportswear, and footwear under one roof. Unlike a typical sporting goods store or department store, the new Springfield Scheels is a collection of entertainment venues, as well as women’s, men’s, youth, specialty, and sport and game shops. Brand-name concept shops by Nike, Adidas, Columbia, and The North Face will keep you active in any season. Each shop is staffed with experts who are passionate about their sports.

Special attractions include eight life-like bronze sculptures; a 16,000 gallon; a 65 foot, 16 car operating Ferris Wheel; a Home Décor and Gift Lodge; a shooting gallery; and simulators for everything from golf, to baseball and hockey, where customers can test their skills. Gramma Gina’s deli and fudge shop serves gourmet soups and sandwiches, Starbucks®coffee, 24 flavors of homemade fudge, and gelato. The Walk of Presidents and many more amenities will make this shopping adventure unlike anything the Springfield retail customer has ever experienced.

This Scheels features boutiques ranging from technical running gear and the latest fashion sportswear to spectacular hunting and fishing shops. The sport shoe, hiking boot, and casual footwear selection will be the largest in Illinois with everything for toddlers to serious climbers, with selections ranging from beach sandals to fashion boots for women. Outdoor enthusiasts will experience world-class shops including golf, bike, ski, whitewater, and sport and game shops. The gun and hunting shops will have the largest retail selection of guns in the State of Illinois, ranging from everyday shooters, to collectible guns valued at $20,000.

Scheels stores offer a complete Service Shop with services ranging from bike repairs and skate sharpening to ski/board waxing and racquet stringing. Each Scheels store has an in-house service technician team to get your gear ready for the season. Our Barnett-certified technicians have received the best bike mechanic training in the industry.

Several shops will feature Scheels Outfitters products. Since its conception in 1902, Scheels Outfitters, a premium brand of Scheels, has outfitted the outdoors enthusiast with everything from camping equipment to hunting clothing. Designed for field experts, by Scheels Experts, Scheels Outfitters is a premium brand that is exclusive to Scheels.

The Springfield Scheels employs more than 300 associates. Scheels is an employee-owned company and provides the best training in retail for its career associates. Our people make the difference. Scheels associates are among the highest paid in retail, and receive outstanding benefits. Scheels also gives back to the local communities. In 2010, Scheels gave back more than 10% of its profits to local charities and local non-profit organizations.  At the VIP event in Springfield on June 24, 2011, Eileen and Steve Scheel presented a check for $100,000 to the United Way of Central Illinois.

Scheels is presently a 24-store operation located in eight states: North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada and Illinois. Frederick A. Scheel founded Scheels as a general merchandise and hardware store. Steve D. Scheel, the great grandson of Scheels’ founder, is Scheels’ CEO, and Steve M.
