Decathlon moves to 35,000 sq ft Trinity Leeds store

The store is set to open later this month, initially focusing on a click and collect service and essential items only, ahead of the full launch in April

Decathlon UK has announced it will be moving to a new 35,000 sq ft flagship store in Trinity Leeds, which is owned by property company Landsec.

Opening later this month, the store will be housed in a former BHS site which spans over two floors, and will initially focus on a click and collect service and essential items only, ahead of the full launch in April.

Furthermore, Decathlon will have a new Covid-secure initiative ‘Click & Drive’, where customers’ products are brought out to their cars, much like a drive-thru. 

James Hutchinson, portfolio manager at Landsec, said: “We’ve already seen an incredible response on our social media channels to this exciting new anchor store. 

“Our shoppers are counting down the days until the Decathlon launch, tangible evidence of Landsec’s work at Trinity, bringing the heart of Leeds back to life.”

David Baker, Decathlon Leeds’ store manager, said: “Since my first day at Decathlon, it has been a dream of mine to open a store in my home city of Leeds. I am very excited that we can help make sport more accessible to people in the city. 

“We’ve already built strong relationships with a number of partners, including Leeds Dock Running and Cycling Club, and Active Leeds. We can’t wait to connect with all the sports enthusiasts in and around Leeds.”
