intu Uxbridge signs new town centre Decathlon store
Decathlon UK has agreed terms with intu to take 18,000 sq ft of space that was previously a BHS store at intu Uxbridge for 15 years until its closure last summer.
Decathlon UK is looking to tap into the growing office-to-sports trend among professionals and the high-footfall retail destination in west London is ideally located for the international sports retailer to reach the rising number of people building exercise into their working day thanks to its close proximity to the UK headquarters of global giants like Apple, Coca-Cola and Cadbury.
Rebecca Ryman, regional director at intu, said: “At intu Uxbridge, its high number of young and affluent customers makes it the perfect location for Decathlon to meet this growing demand for health and sports goods as part of its strategy to enter more high-footfall destinations.”
