Europe’s number 1 sports retailer, Decathlon finally arrives in the Philippines. And why should you get excited? Decathlon Philippines aims to “Makes sports accessible to Every Juan” by bringing quality sports and outdoor products at very affordable prices. So think camping equipment, bikes, hiking, backpacks, training apparel and gear, fishing, aqua sports, cross training, yoga and more all for less than the popular brands.
When I first walked into one of Decathlon stores in Kuwait, I was astounded by the number of brands and massive stock of sports and outdoor equipment they carry. And was more stunned by how low their prices were that I thought I was wrong in converting my Kuwaiti Dinar to Pesos or Dollar. How can they offer these products so low? Is the quality any good?
As I found out, Decathlon is an integrated French company. They are not only in retail but is also into production, design and distribution of products. In fact Decathlon is the 3rd largest Research and Development in France. They make sure to offer the best technology on their products. Also to lessen the cost, they don’t hire any celebrity endorsers for their products.
Decathlon Philippines is part of the 1,120 stores worldwide in 30 countries. There’s a plan to open 30 stores in the country within 10 years span.
Decathlon Philippines also offer membership to customers. And here are some reason why you should:
- Return of Decathlon passion brand products for an exchange or refund within a delay of 365 DAYS from the date of the purchase. The original sales invoice shall be presented together with the product/s for each return.
- An additional one-year warranty for the Decathlon Products covered by a sales warranty.
- Free one-time bike servicing when you purchase a bicycle following your registration to our workshop service.
- Exclusive promotional offers and services and special advantages at events organized by Decathlon
- Personal notification of the withdrawal or recall of a product for quality and/or safety reasons
- Members may request, within a period of two years from the date of purchase, a duplicate of their till receipts for items purchased with Decathlon, without submitting any proof of purchase
Aside from the said benefits, I like that I can also purchase online and monitor all my purchase in the member’s area. Not to mention, you get a Free canvass bag too.
Decathlon Philippines is an exciting entry for us that enjoy sports and outdoors. They are currently at soft opening and will officially open this June 30, 2017.
