Sports Retailer Decathlon Opens in Aberdeen

Acting on behalf of Hammerson, Culverwell are pleased to announce that we have negotiated a new long lease with Decathlon in Union Square, Aberdeen. Decathlon have taken one of the anchor stores in the retail terrace extending to 24,000 sq ft and it is the brand's third store in Scotland.

Decathlon is the largest sporting goods shop in the world, with more than 1,500 stores in 57 countries.

Ryan Manson, Union Square General Manager, said: “Decathlon’s unique offer will be a great addition to Union Square and to Aberdeen.  It is testament to the continued popularity of Union Square as a leading leisure and retail destination that such a well-known international name has decided to open a store in the centre.  In these challenging times, more people than ever before are looking to take up exercise and to explore the outdoors, so I’m certain Decathlon will be a very welcome addition to the city.”

Ben Hatton, Decathlon Scotland Leader, said: “We are delighted to finally be coming to Aberdeen, helping to make sport even more accessible in Scotland."
