Decathlon turns stores into fulfillment centers
The world’s largest sporting goods retailer is keeping its U.S. stores in the game during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Based in France, Decathlon operates three U.S. brick-and-mortar stores in the Bay Area of California. After closing its stores in the wake of the COVID-19 health crisis, Decathlon saw a spike in its e-commerce business as more consumers shopped for sports equipment and apparel for at-home use.
