Decathlon opening 4th and biggest store in Singapore. I'm surprised there is no thread being started here since they are so popz! SG so small need to many megastore? But anyway what's good in Decathlon? Been there so many times so far only buy a pair of shoes and also bag from the City Square store.

SINGAPORE - Riding on a tie-up with national sports agency Sport Singapore (SportSG), sporting goods retailer Decathlon is set to open its biggest store here yet.

The store in Stadium Boulevard in Kallang - Decathlon's fourth here - will be about 5,000 sq m in size and is expected to open its doors in January next year.

Decathlon announced the news at its Bedok store on Tuesday (May 22), where a memorandum of understanding was signed by its Asia chief executive Yves Claude and his SportSG counterpart Lim Teck Yin.

Called the Decathlon Singapore Lab, the store is the first of its kind in Asia, pioneering the use of technology like virtual simulations and augmented reality.

Customers trying out a pair of shoes will be able to get foot scans, for example.

"Traditional retail is in trouble around the world. The expectations of customers are changing very quickly, they will not come just for the (store's) layout," said Mr Claude.

I would suggest for them to have real time live update tags for their products also.

 

I was looking for a pair of track pants and the price board says got size xs to xxl ... but after going through the whole lot, the largest I could find was xl only ! damn ... waste time only.

True, thats why i think not a very good strategy to expand so fast in sg retail. But another giant retail uniqlo also expand and opened many outlets, and seems like their business not bad?!

Their stuff good for beginners but if you want to take your interest in the particular sport a bit further, you need to shop elsewhere.

Cheap and good!  Look at the specs (suitable for temperature X to Y etc), esp ski jackets.

 

I have a few (for wify, kiddo etc) bought in China.  In fact my jacket is too warm at -5!  Over-speced and meant for -15 degrees.

Agree. Also good for parents with young kids to shop there. If you dunno whether your kids will take up to a sport and dont wanna splurge much yet then this is to go to place for sport equipment and sportswear.
