EAST WENATCHEE — A national sporting goods chain has announced plans to open a 49,000-square-foot store by early next year in the soon-to-be vacated Sears space at Wenatchee Valley Mall.

Sportsman’s Warehouse, based in Utah, said today it would expand into East Wenatchee with its 49th store in 15 states. It will be the sixth store for the company in Washington State.

Writing on its Facebook page, Wenatchee Valley Mall officials confirmed today that Sportsman’s Warehouse signed a lease for the Sears space. Sears is set to close mid-August after an 85-year presence in the Wenatchee Valley.

Mall execs also announced in the Facebook posting that a smaller Sears store — 10,813 square feet in size — would open at the mall and sell Sears products, including Craftsman and Kenmore brands.

Sportsman’s Warehouse sells national brands of sporting goods that include gear for hunting, fishing, archery, camping, boating, knives and tools, boots and outdoor clothing.
