Dean Rock opens new Decathlon store on O'Connell Street

Ex-Dublin GAA player Dean Rock (pictured below) was in attendance to open the third Decathlon store in the Republic of Ireland, located in the masterfully restored Clerys Quarter on O’Connell Street today.

The 12pm opening saw a huge queue spanning around the side of the building, with hundreds of shoppers waiting to get a glimpse of the new store!

The Clerys building is an iconic Dublin building and in an age before mobile phones, was a key landmark for people to meet “under the Clerys clock!

After months of sourcing, Decathlon secured a long-term partnership for a 30-year agreement on the most famous street in Dublin. The opening has seen over 50 new jobs created locally, across various different areas.

The store spans two levels with a floor area of over 2,200 square metres. Upon entering the store customers can explore areas covering running, swimming, nutrition, yoga and Pilates.

The lower level contains even more sports including hiking and camping, cycling and urban mobility, fitness and boxing as well as team sports such as GAA, soccer, golf and tennis. Throughout the store, customers can discover innovative Decathlon brands as well as brands that they know and love.

The store boasts both online and in store solutions to discover and make purchases, all while being assisted by Decathlon’s experienced sports advisors. Connected Order is the digital solution for Decathlon’s teammates in store to sell the whole product catalogue even when products are out of stock in the shop. This will also be where customers can shop larger ticket items that may not be available in the Clerys Quarter store due to floorspace, and these items will be delivered directly to their homes.

The store also features the Decathlon workshop which is a cornerstone of all stores designed to extend the life of products and cater to a wide demographic of sports enthusiasts. It will feature an express workshop on the ground floor for quick services and a main workshop in the basement for more comprehensive repairs and maintenance. Decathlon’s carefully selected services ensure that customers' needs are met efficiently and effectively.

Current estimates show that there are at least 26,000 bikes in Dublin City Centre daily, and the Decathlon workshop will be the place to head to if you’re having trouble with yours.

Additionally, the workshop also offers a garment printing service and a range of trophies. These services are tailored to meet the diverse needs of the clientele, from personalising cycling apparel to celebrating achievements with custom trophies.
