If you’re a sports and outdoor enthusiast, we’ve got some great news for you! Decathlon, the renowned global brand, is set to open its newest store at Metropolis at Metrotown, and it’s going to be an absolute game-changer. In the meantime, you can browse at their pop-up store that opened on October 28.


Founded in 1976 in France, Decathlon has established itself as a leader in designing, manufacturing, testing, and selling sports apparel and equipment. With over 1,700 stores in more than 60 countries, Decathlon has created a loyal following by not only offering high-quality products but also providing a holistic shopping experience.


Well, prepare to be impressed. The store will offer a vast selection of sporting goods, and the best part is that there will be knowledgeable in-store experts to assist you in finding the perfect gear for your needs. You’ll also have a dedicated space to touch, feel, and experience the products, including the opportunity to test bikes, try out camping tents, and even challenge a friend to a game of ping pong.


For those unfamiliar with Decathlon’s philosophy, the brand has always aimed to make sports and outdoor activities accessible to everyone. They achieve this by not only offering a wide range of sporting goods but also by providing in-store gyms, product test areas, and in-person and online technical services. It’s this commitment to delivering a comprehensive sporting experience that has made Decathlon a household name in the world of sports retail. And here’s the icing on the cake: if you prefer shopping online, you can have your items delivered to the store, and you won’t incur any shipping costs when you pick them up.


Metropolis at Metrotown, located in Burnaby, British Columbia, is already known for its diverse retail offerings. Although the ongoing pop-up store is located right across from Muji, the actual store will be replacing the old two-storey Forever 21. Amanda Chung, Marketing Manager of Metropolis at Metrotown, is thrilled about the arrival of Decathlon, saying, “We are so excited to welcome Decathlon, a brand that has built an incredible reputation for providing high-quality sports products at affordable prices. This marks another step forward in our quest to deliver an elevated shopping experience and diverse retail offering to our guests.”


So mark your calendars! Don’t miss the pop-up shop in October and get ready to experience a whole new level of sports retail excellence in Spring 2024. See below for resources to elevate your shopping experience:
