This month a new anchor store will open at the Columbia mall in Grand Forks.

The 120-thousand square foot store took over the vacated Target, with has sat empty for more than a decade.

For one, this new store will offer more than triple the space than the existing Columbia Road store.

And that will mean larger space for departments and more full and part time jobs, store officials say 100 new jobs in all.

The store will also have a large deli, a miniature bowling alley and sport simulators. Store manager Jason Heintz says a new store was necessary to keep up with the growth of Grand Forks. 

Grand Forks Scheels Store Manager Jason Heintz said, "we have the same lines that we carried in our old store, with the size we needed to add more product mix, etc."

The new scheels store is set to open their doors in 23 days, on June 28.
