NEW NEW: Decathlon opens their latest door at SM Fairview
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock the past two weeks, global sports retailer Decathlon just opened up their latest door for us northern folk.
Yes, that’s right, if you’re from QC and you’re dreading the trek to Pasig or Alabang, you don’t have to look further as their latest door is at SM Fairview. The new store is actually the 6th Decathlon store in the country and third in partnership with SM Supermalls.
We were fortunate to have been invited during the opening and the place is MASSIVE! You can now pick up a new sport or hone your skills with the appropriate gear, choosing from over 70 different sports within their 2000 sqm space.
“We believe in sports as a main catalyst of sustainability, overall health and well-being, and in line with our mission to make sports accessible to the many, we look forward to helping even more Filipinos discover, rekindle, and pursue their love of sport.”
As mentioned previously, this is the third SM Supermall that houses Decathlon (SM MOA and North Edsa are the other two), and it truly is a site to be at. With the holidays coming, it’s definitely worth a visit, whether you’re looking to learn a new sport or you want to gift a loved one the gift of sport. The retail experience definitely rivals similar globa chains, where you can purchase in-store or online (via decathlon.ph), or even book your orders via store pickup, or have them delivered straight to your home. The store also boasts of self-checkout kiosks as well as digital payment options for that seamsless, hassle-free experience.
For those not familiar with Decathlon, you can test their products in-store and return, exchange the items with their 2-year warranty. Being a member is free too, and gets you access to a number of perks and sporting events hosted by the retailer.
To be quite honest, this article does not do justice if you haven’t been to a Decathlon store. The mere experience of being in one piques one’s interest, urging you to pick up a bat, try on some gear and eventually fall in love with sports over and over. If you’re from the north (or you just love to travel around the metro), do drop by Decathlon Fairview, located at the Upper Ground Level, Central Walk at SM Fairview, Quezon City or shop online at www.decathlon.ph.
