In 1976 this company was established as a hypermarket for sports gear. Enormous halls, plenty of parking spaces and a large selection of products for reasonable prices is what you get today. In the world of action sports new trends come and go quickly and Decathlon has plenty of expertise in this arena. It employs over 250 engineers and 80 designers to create the next new sensation. The result of all this effort is a constant avalanche of new products including 3,500 innovations per year from fishing lures for anglers to bikes, tents and skis. The company already has two mega stores in Holland, one in Amsterdam and one in Kerkrade. Even if you don't want or need to buy anything it's an excellent place just to browse and kill time for an hour or so.
