Decathlon - I own half the shop!

AdvantagesSomething for every sport, cheap

DisadvantagesNot always in your size, slight damage to some goods

"Having recently spent a lot of time and money in this shop I thought it was time that I shared my experience with you. The shop ------------- The shop I will be reviewing is the one nearest to me in Nottingham situated on the Giltbrook trading estate. There are other stores across the country, check out www.decathlon.co.uk for store locations and opening times. The shop in Nottingham is large with plenty of parking, although it is situated ..."

A Gold Medal for Decathlon.

AdvantagesPlenty parking

DisadvantagesCan get busy at weekends

"...bag. I bought the Decathlon brand bag, at 7.99. It looks good and is very sturdy. I am hopeful that it will last a long time. It was easily the best buy there, as the big brands were much more expensive for items of comparable quality. For example a bag of similar size to the one I bought was 17.99. I feel that Decathlon is a good store, with all you might need, to do which ever sport you choose. Its location is good, with plenty parking, good ..." Read review

Something for everyone

AdvantagesHuge range of stock

DisadvantagesNone

"Decathlon stores are idendified by there big blue sign with clear white writing as you can see from the picture above. Until recently I have never ventured into one of their stores - the reason being I thought it was expensive. I have no idea where I got this impression from but I thought it was. However my opinion has been changed over the last couple of months as a new store has opened up near my work at Junction 9 industrial park at Wednesbury ..." Read review

Quick review of Decathlon (Shop)

"I bought a Mountain Bike from Decathlon in 2002 and it was fine, well made, used good components and I had no problems with it. I wore it out and returned to buy a replacement in 2006. This bike looked ok in the shop, but pretty soon it was obvious that it was a pile of Cr&p ! it was made in China, the teeth broke off the cogs, the brakes were useless, the thing started to go rusty, the suspension was a joke, there was no damping so it was extremely uncomfortable. I took it back and they were good enough to refund my money. But I can't recomend their bikes unless you spend £400 +in which case you can choose from many other good brands which will undoubtedly be better in every way

Steer well clear of Decathlon

AdvantagesCheap

DisadvantagesTerrible quality, completely unreliable, poor customer service

"...quite honest the products from Decathlon are so shoddy it's almost beyond belief. I bought a bike from there because it seemed cheap, but within a very short space of time, the handlebars had worked loose, the pedals had fallen off, the lights fell off and smashed, both tyres burst, etc, etc. I took it back to the store on several occasions, and admittedly they did do the repairs, but added insult to injury by trying to blame me and charge me for ..."

Decathlon store provide Domyos footwear at very cheap prices.

Advantagescheap

Disadvantagesonly in white or black

"The Sheffield branch for Decathlon provides a full packed availability of Domyos footwear. This specific footwear aresuitable for casual wearing but also can be used in sporting activities. The price of these is less than £5 making them popular. They are comfortable to wear and are easily located as they are on the end of an isle in a promotional manner. From my point of view if one is looking for cheap footwear which can be wore for different occasions ..." Read review
