Sporting goods retailer Decathlon is to open a new 26,900 sq ft store in Liverpool's city centre next week, taking over a former Next store.

Located on Liverpool's Church street, the new store will take over the ground floor of the building, which has six floors. Apart from its selection of affordable sportswear items, the store will also feature its Second Life collection, which sees pre-loved sports equipment given a second life after being repaired by Decathlon.

Decathlon currently operates around 2,000 outlets around the world and 49 in the UK.

In its financial year 2020 trading update the retailer revealed that its online revenue rose 122.4% in the UK compared to 2019, showcasing the pivot in consumer behaviour during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Decathlon has also made first moves into the rental market this year by teaming up with resale company Hirestreet to offer customers the chance to rent ski-wear and outerwear.
