I’ve been seeing the word Decathlon in different social media but I did not mind it because I’m not into sports so feeling ko, marathon or fun run ito, magkarhyme e. hehehe! But last Thursday, my friend asked me if I’ve been to Decathlon in Festival Mall.
I said “No, hindi naman ko mahilig sa sports so baka wala ko mabili”. She said, try mo ang dami mura and she mentioned the stuff that they bought in Decathlon. She said that the store is big but according to her brother, x3 daw nun ang Decathlon sa Singapore.
Out of curiosity, I searched for it. According to Wikipedia, Decathlon is one of the largest sporting goods retailers which founded by Michel Leclercq in Lille, France. It started its first store in 1976 and now there are more than 1100 stores around the world. So far there is only one store in the Phillippines and it is located in Festival Mall, Alabang, Muntinlupa. Wow, ang tagal na pala and wala ko kamalay-malay.
Last Sunday, on our way to Alabang, I informed my husband about Decathlon so before we went to the grocery, we paid a visit to the store. And we were surprised na ang laki nga niya and the price is really affordable.
I even saw a friend there and sabi ko talaga, “napadpad ka dito sa South”. He said “dumadayo talaga kami dito sa Decathlon”. Well, if you are really into sports, you will appreciate Decathlon because your money can go along way. You can buy a shirt for as low as P199.
Kinain ko yung sinabi ko na baka wala ko mabili, because we went home with these stuff. Now I know, where to buy affordable sports clothes and accessories. I’m so glad na malapit ang first store sa amin. There are 8 cashiers pero ang haba pa rin ng pila so expect long lines.
If you want to become a member, just register and it is FREE. You can also get a one-time reusable bag for free or buy it for P50. I don't know yet, what are the benefits of being a member. Have you been to Decathlon?
Update April 9, 2018
My aunt was looking for shirts (big sizes) and I recommend Decathlon baka may makita siya na malaking size. So after my mom bought pants at Landmark, off we went to the store. At the counter, out of the blue, my mom asked me kung nasan na daw yung bitbit niya. What! I remembered na umupo siya in one of the benches in Decathlon store. So I guess, nung tumayo siya naiwan niya yung shopping bag.
We checked the whole store and one staff also helped us in checking each aisle then she referred us to one of the staff. The guy went to their office to check their LOST AND FOUND, but unfortunately, no one returned the shopping bag. I asked for CCTV footage so we can see who took the shopping bag but the guy replied na hindi naman daw nakafocus dun yung CCTV. Lesson learned, be alert. Nafood coma yata nanay ko after magbuffet sa All4U at bigla nakalimutan na may bitbit siya. Goodbye pants!

You're actually right! haha. Decathlon definitely sounds like triathlon and marathon, lol! Dane will love this place, mahilig yun sa sports. Even before we got married, sya ang mahilig pumasok sa mga ganitong stores. lol.ReplyDelete
Visit niyo pagnakauwi na si Dane. :)Delete
I haven't been here. Nasa loob lang ba sya ng Festival Mall? Mukhang you were able to score some really nice items.ReplyDelete
Yes, 2nd level. Yun yata yung dating second flr ng shopwise.Delete
Waaah! Ayun pala ang name nun, hinahanap ko ito last Friday sa Festival.ReplyDelete
Travelers from a group recommend this shop for their quality and affordable products :)
Sayang noh? Nandun ka pa naman sa Oishi event sa Festi, sana nadaanan mo. Yes, affordable ang mga products.Delete
I havent been to Decathlon and do not have the slightest idea what it offers. But seeing those sports gear and the likes, I am positive my boys would love to visit the place. I just hope there is a similar store near our place. But it is really tempting to pay the place a visit ha.ReplyDelete
Yes, your boys will enjoy this place, meron din area where you can play some sports. I hope they will have more branches in the Philippines.Delete
Ito pala yung sinasabi ng college friends ko noong magkita kita kami last Sunday. May mga gusto daw silang bilhin sa Festival Mall, kasi may shop daw doon na super mura ng mga items. Super sulit nga daw for sports and travel enthusiasts. :)ReplyDelete
True, cheaper compared to other sports store and may 2 yrs warranty din yata.Delete
It's my first time to hear about Decathlon as well. Natawa ako sa sounds like marathon momshie! hehe... Mukhang ok dito, makadaan narin sakto sa south.ReplyDelete
Di ba, magkarhyme sila so feeling ko expected na store pala ang Decathlon. hehehe!Delete
Omg!! Pag mabasa to ni Lemuel (my husband) sigurado pupunta yon dito. Aside sa mahilig yon sa sports naghahanap din un ng pang basketball na sapatos at pang jogging. Di lang pang adult may pang bata pa. Bet ko to!ReplyDelete
Yes, for adults and kids ang tinda nila. Mapaparami ka ng bili. hehehe!Delete
Yes, this is my husband's fave store at the moment. He has bought many sports accessories here and even got an adult scooter for himself. HahahaReplyDelete
The only thing that we don't like here is that they don't have free bags (even a paper bag or brown bag?!) when you purchase. The free eco bag was during their first week/s of opening.
Last week when he purchased, he have to carry the item with bare hands (parang shoplifter tuloy, hehe). It seems unpractical naman if he will buy eco bag with every purchase. I told him next time to bring the free eco bag we got from previous purchases, and told me he'll never know when he will shop there, so bringing it anytime would be impossible.😝
We were informed naman na yung free bag pag first time mo magmember. So parang IKEA style sila na bring your own bag or bitbitin mo na lang. Oo nga noh, parang shoplifter lang ang dating na wala supot, di tayo sanay sa ganyan. Hehehe!Delete
We're going back to the South soon, so thank you for telling me about Decathlon. I think we'll be visiting this place often esp now that we're pushing the kids to be more outdoorsy and more active.ReplyDelete
