Decathlon opens in the GTA July 10th

First Decathlon location in the GTA opens tomorrow at Mapleview shopping centre.

The large Vaughan Mills location hopefully will be open in the coming months, as well as their future expansion to the actual city of Toronto.

As a sport and recreation enthusiast, this is definitely welcome news.

Terrible timing for another major sporting goods retailer. Right when it looks like SAIL and MEC are on the brink, and Sportchek is likely to shutter up some shops too.

Might be just the right time. Decathlon could move right in to MEC's locations if MEC goes under.

I dunno about Decathlon's M.O. here re: rent but I suspect MEC's location is too pricey. Generally like to go where rent is cheap, and invest very little in store decorations (more like a pop-up).
I smile when I see container ships sailing past my house laden with stuff made in China
