Decathlon Opens in the West & it's the Biggest Store yet!

Media Invite

Sports lovers who live in the West, rejoice. Now you do not have to travel all the way to Bedok to shop at Decathlon... because the French sporting goods retailer is opening a brand new outlet at Fairprice Hub in Joo Koon on 13 May 2017. And this store will be its largest megastore in Singapore yet!

In case you don't know, Decathlon is like the sports version of IKEA as it is well-known for its affordable prices and mega stores which encourages customers to try out its products before purchase. Like these colourful bags which only cost $3.90!

Decathlon keeps its prices low by developing all of its products in-house. In fact, it owns about 25 brands with its products researched and developed by their own teams. Each brand represents a different sport or group of sports, with a dedicated product development and design team.

And the items are guaranteed to be 20% to 40% cheaper than those at other sports retailers,

And when it comes to Decathlon, the monkies simply love shopping there... even if we usually do not intend to buy anything (but we almost always end up buying something)! They love walking down the aisles and aisles of sporting products but most importantly, they enjoy trying out the various sporting equipment on display.

And now, Decathlon's newest outlet in Joo Koon has upped the ante by occupying a massive 4,000 square meters area - the outlet in Bedok spans 3,300 square meters. More space for the monkies to explore then!

Other than the fact that the store will carry over 100,000 items for over 60 sports, the new store includes 10 experience zones - some of which are absent in the other 2 stores in Bedok and City Square Mall.

Besides an area for customers to try out the roller blades & scooters, a mini football and basketball arena, you will be able to try your hand at golf putting at the mini green.

Also, which kid can resist a good game of table tennis?

A totally new experience zone is the slack line area, which caters to a new and growing sport group. Planning to buy climbing shoes? You can test them out at the mini climbing pyramids first to get a sens of the grip.

If running is more your thing, you get to test out running shoes on a running track with 2 different surfaces!

The e-commerce aspect of Decathlon will also be integrated at its Joo Koon outlet. Come June, a new website will be launched and shoppers will be able to order items online and have them delivered on the same day within SIX hours. Amazing!

Looks like I have a new place to bring the monkies!
