You've seen the progress on the new Scheels sporting goods store being added to the Southgate Mall, with an opening date set for this October, 2021, and it sounds like they're ready to begin doing interviews to build their staff.

Scheels will be 119,000 square feet and will cater to Western Montanans interested in the outdoors, sports, hunting, fishing, cycling, and camping. Sounds like they will have all of the trusted big name brands of clothing for adults and kids, as well. In addition to 70 different sections of shopping, they will also have attractions like arcade games, a bike tuning service shop, and even a lunch and snack spot called Ginna's Cafe that brews Sheels' own brand of coffee.

With stores in Great Falls and Billings, this will be the 3rd Sheels in Montana. In fact, Great Falls is where I first heard about Scheels, which opened there 50 years ago. The company is employee owned and has pride in giving back to the communities they serve by donating more than 10% of their profits to local charities and non-profits.

If you're passionate about sports, fashion, and/or the outdoors you may want to apply for a position with Missoula's newest sporting goods store. "The job opportunities at the Missoula SCHEELS offer a fun work environment with plenty of growth opportunities and excellent benefits. With a wide variety of products and services, working at SCHEELS allows you to focus on what you’re passionate about in an environment that challenges you with new opportunities everyday."

They are now hiring for full-time and part-time cashiers, support, and Ginna’s Cafe associates, with opportunities for growth and benefits. Apply here and keep checking back for more positions to open. You can also find updates on the Missoula location on Facebook and Instagram.
