Three acres of potatoes were used as seed for the first SCHEELS store in 1902. Frédéric A. Scheel, a German immigrant, used the $ 300 he earned from this first harvest as a deposit on the first SCHEELS, a small hardware store in Sabin, Minnesota. Over the years, SCHEELS has opened its doors to surrounding communities, including Fargo in 1930, where the head offices are located. Customer interest increased and sports lines were added to the product mix.
SCHEELS is now a 30 store operation with stores in 13 states, including North Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Nevada, Illinois, Utah, Kansas, Colorado, and Texas.
