Europe’s Decathlon sets opening date

Europe’s leading sports retailer Decathlon will open its first Singapore store on January 16.

It follows the unveiling of five stores in Thailand in the two months prior to Christma, as the UK-based retailer builds its Asian footprint.

Few details of the store have been released, but the accompanying photograph of the first bangkok shop gives readers an idea of how the interior will look.

The company describes the new flagship as “Singapore’s first sports megastore with 50 sports under one roof” including football, water sports, trekking, running, road biking and golf. Located at 750A Chai Chee Rd, it will trade from 9am to 10pm 365 days a year “to do what we do best – make sports accessible to you!”

The Thai stores range in size from 1700 sqm to 2700 sqm, and are evenly located around the capital city, Bangkok.

Decathlon Thailand boss Frederic Bichet says the stores are exclusive retailers of Decathlon’s Passion brands.
