French sporting goods retailer Decathlon, known for its accessible prices and mega stores, has opened its flagship store at Viva Business Park. It’s at Ground Level of Technopark@Chai Chee, 750A Chai Chee Road.
At 35,000 sq ft, you are guaranteed to spend a few hours, contemplating deeply on a new sport that you’d like to take on. Heregotsale was there to check out their products on sale and it is worth checking out.
More than 95,000 apparel, equipment and footwear products - from tennis rackets to scuba-diving equipment are available at the store. These products cover more than 50 types of sports and are sold under the company's 20 in-house labels, such as its hiking brand Quechua and its team sports brand Kipsta.
Decathlon also has a bicycle repair workshop, where customers can have their bicycle of any brand repaired for a fee.
We feel that it’s about time that Singapore has a sporting megastore which provides high performance sports equipment at reasonable price point. This is so that the masses are able to enjoy sports, or taking on new sports, without overspending on their budget.
Let's review what Decathlon has on offer and why is it worth for you to check it out.
There's camping accessories by Quecha, if you want to go camping on a budget. And if you must, there's a section for you to try out the sports equipment. Check out the kids enthusiastically at play. However, please approach the friendly sale staff for assistance.
They have a Running section by Kalenji. I tried on their running shoes, which was very light and comfortable. At a price point of $21.90, it's good quality and should last you for a few marathons.
To check if your heart is beating optimally on your next workout/run, we found a heart rate monitor. And it only costs $26.90.
They've got a sports watch as well, selling at only $9.90. It's good for 100m underwater. Now that's functional and cheap at the same time.
Check out the other sections when you're there. There's even a Horse-Riding section. That's something you don't see in every other sports shop.
