On the day before their “sale to end their sales,” June 1st, I talked with a manager and gained perspective on the last days of Sports Authority in Cheyenne’s Frontier Mall. Since this closure affects not just a city, but a wide region, I wanted input from those affected.

In my article, I asked for your choice to replace the soon to be gone store. After 11 days of voting, here are the results.


Best Buy - electronics, computers, appliances, cell phones, video games & tech 24%

Forever 21 with latest trend in clothes for women 20%

Cabela's - hunting, fishing, boating, camping, shooting, and outdoor recreation 18.67%

Dave & Buster’s – Pricey Chuck E Cheese for grown ups to Eat, Drink, Play & Watch Sports®! 10.67%

Other: 10.67%

Williams-Sonoma - your source for gourmet foods and professional-quality cookware 6.67%

Kona Grill - International and American freshly prepared food 5.33%

Now it’s just a matter of time until we find out who or what will replace Sports Authority. They expect to be closed by the last day of July.
