And it is 15 years since it last opened one in the London area

Decathlon UK opens record fourth store in 12 months

Tonight sees Decathlon open its Croydon store, which is a landmark for the sports retailer as it is the fourth this year – a record for Decathlon UK. It’s Decathlon’s second in London – 15 years since it opened its last one.

The opening comes hot on the heels of Decathlon’s Harlow store launch, which took place just one week ago.

Decathlon Croydon is located at Trafalgar Way Retail Park. UK CEO Thibaut Pietters will be there at the ribbon cutting along with Croydon store manager Manel Ramoul and Olympic Bronze Medalist Steve Parry.
