The Herald Sun reported that some major Decathlon fans like Chi Tan had even taken the day off work to attend the grand opening. Chi Tan told the Herald Sun how he and his partner had been enthusiastically waiting for the launch of the Decathlon store at Box Hill Home Co, and how “We used to buy from Decathlon and find the products are very good,”.
Also reported from the Herald Sun was how Rebecca Jennings from Ashburton had come across her first Decathlon store while in France and had said “I’ve been wishing to the universe that Decathlon would come here ever since,” and “The store was amazing, and the quality is awesome.”
