A RIBBON cutting this morning marked the opening of SportChek in Terrace, BC.

A crowd had gathered outside leading toward the 9 am opening while general manager Jennifer Lewis gave staff members a last minute briefing.

The store is located at the Skeena Mall which is undergoing an estimated $10 million in renovations.

The store is just under 13,000 square feet in size and is, for the moment, the only SportChek in northwestern BC and just the second in northern BC

Approximately 35 full and part time people are employed at the store.

SportChek is part of the Forzani Group which was bought by Canadian Tire last year.

Since then plans have been announced to revamp and expand the SportChek banner across Canada.

Next up for the Skeena Mall is the opening of a Dollarama store of approximately the same size as SportChek and a 28,000 square Winners follows soon after.
