I only get back once a year, but I really liked the simplicity of where they are now. Getting in and out was so easy which I really liked and it took me right by the University so I was able to kill two birds with one stone so to speak. I will miss the old spot for sure.

Great news for the city and for the mall! Scheel’s is the anchor Columbia Mall needs, and Grand Forks needs a healthy mall. Smart move too on the part of the mall to announce it early. I predict a healthy sales tax increase, perhaps by as much as 10 percent, in 2015. This changes everything!!!

The added parking will also help. Just hope they patch up the lot, or repave it all together.

Why wait 3 years to make a move to the mall that they should have made 5 years ago? Leases can be bought out.

Three years is a long time to wait! Start remodeling and open in fall 2012. It would be wise for Columbia Mall and Scheels to jointly buy out the last two years of the lease! Hugo’s owns the space.

It’s going to be great!!! Now they just don’t have enough space to carry as much as I wish they did and sometimes have to travel across the river to check at that other place (which usually doesn’t have what you want anyway). Now hopefully it will be like their Fargo and Bismarck stores and have a great supply of everything you want. Way to go Scheels!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t make us wait!!! MOVE NOW!!!

I think they must have finally realized the trade area of GF is larger than Fargo’s. Within 2 hrs. of GF there are 1million+ potential shoppers. Most of those are within 70 mi. of the US border. Within 2 hrs. of Fargo there are maybe 500,000. Of course I’m incld. Manitoba’s 1 m people that with the price of gas would prefer to drive an hour less & have a choice of both Scheels & Cabellas.

It will be great to see life breathed into the Columbia Mall. It is a super business decision that will benefit Scheel’s and the whole mall. I wish it would happen sooner.

This makes me so happy…best news for GF in a long time. Scheels is a great store and they have totally outgrown their current location. I agree – don’t wait until 2014!!
