The low-cost French sports goods chain has plans to expand in Switzerland. 14 new stores, employing between 500 and 600 staff, are planned for 2019, according to the newspaper 20 Minutes.

Many of the new stores will be refurbished Athleticum stores. Décathlon teamed up with Athleticum in 2018.

In German-speaking Switzerland, the first stores will open in Suhr (Aargau) and Baar (Zug) in March. These will be followed by stores in Bern, Winterthur and St. Gallen in April. The final store is scheduled to open in Zurich in August.

French-speaking Switzerland will get two stores opening in Avry, outside Fribourg, and Villeneuve, near Montreux, in April and October respectively.

Decathlon currently has nine stores in Switzerland in Marin-Epagnier, Geneva, Meyrin, Lausanne, Conthey, Collombey, Sant’Antonino and Basel.
