Sporting goods store Decathlon Hong Kong yesterday launched its first flagship store, at Grand Plaza, Mongkok.
Another store is scheduled to open at Causeway Bay Park Lane this month, according to the French brand’s Facebook page.
Offering up to 70 types of sports equipment and clothing for amateur and professional athletes, the flagship store covers more than 25,000 sqft (2300 sqm), making it the largest single-storey sporting goods store in Hong Kong.
Customers can access extra details about products by scanning the barcode at one of the store’s smart shopping screens.
Another feature is the first-ever “Decathlon community”, which offers expert sporting information and organises free activities to promote physical recreation and sports.
Decathlon first entered Hong Kong in 2015 with a website and e-commerce platform. It last year secured 15-year leases for shops, reports EdgeProp, which says the brand originally planned to open a 35,000 sqft flagship store in Viva Business Park (Chai Chee Technopark).
