At 220,000 square feet, Scheels offers the region's largest selection of sports, fashion, and footwear under one roof. This unique destination also features a Ferris wheel, bowling alley, and a Lego's replica of the Cornhusker mascot.

The staff has extensive knowledge of all products and will help you find everything from comfortable walking shoes to rugged outdoor gear for your next expedition. The varied selection includes fish rods, golf clubs, and ski jackets.


Owned by the same family since 1976, Lincoln Running Company helps the city stay active. It's one of the top 50 running stores in the United States and ensures that everyone leaves with the perfect fit.

The staff takes measurements for your custom-fit shoes and offers valuable training and nutritional tips for your fitness goals. Lincoln Running Company also carries shorts, tank tops, and lightweight jackets.


Cycle Works began from humble beginnings in the shell of a former car wash. Today, it features more than 1,000 bikes assembled by professional bicycle mechanics. Customers can test ride the different models, and the shop offers a free 30-day checkup with purchase. The staff shows customers how to change tires, shift gears, and more. They'll also suggest where to ride whether you want an easy journey or a more challenging and rough terrain.
