Steve Scheel Speaks at Annual Meeting

BILLINGS -

A big-name sports retailer headlined the annual meeting of Big Sky Economic Development, a partnership between public and private organizations focused on growing Yellowstone County's economy.

The Keynote speaker for this year's event was Steve Scheel, CEO of the sporting goods store Scheels. One of Scheel's newest stores is being built at Shiloh Crossing in Billings. It will be a large regional store with attractions such as a Ferris Wheel, shooting galleries, and a soccer simulator.

Scheels Chairman and CEO Steve Scheel said, "We're going to be rolling out a lot of things in Billings that have worked in Salt Lake, that we're rolling out in Kansas City as well, and we've got some things planned for Billings that we've never done before in a Scheels store, and we're looking forward to September 6 of next year when we get open."

The new store is expected to hire around 450 people, about half of which will be full-time employees. It's hoped the store will attract people from as far away as Canada, Idaho, and the Dakotas.
