No Farris Wheel Ride? We Are Live at Scheels - It's YOUR Business (Seg 1)

by Mark Brown

$25 million remodeling -- nearly 200,000 Square Feet --- and Sioux Falls gets one of the largest Schells Store.

As the 1st Lieutenants we are for Midwest Communication -- we were live from the Catwalk -- putting our 671st and 672nd show at a new height.

Scheels has been remodeled --- and created a lot of attention. The Farris wheel has people waiting in line on the weekend to ride. Changes have been made with merchandise --- and the biggest of the promotions come on Saturday.

While the doors open at 9:00 on Saturday --- its the 6 to 9AM parking lot side of this you need to address.

$10,000 worth of Scheels gift card giveaways sponsored by Silver Stone Group.

Those arriving 6 to 9 (first 250) have the opportunity in the parking lot -- to qualify for a $1000 Scheels gift card. $9000 in gift cards will be given away in the parking lot.

Free donuts from Fly by Donuts --Champions Forever Showtimes are 7:00 - 7:45 and 8:30. It promises to be a circus atmosphere.

During our hour we talked with Scheels best---Christy Schauer, Melanie Heller who rode with me on the farris wheel. Chris Kray, and Mike Walldaire. What was obvious from each was the ownership they take from this new store -- and the people that visit it.
