Ikea has expanded its retail park in Tempe, NSW to create a tailored space for Decathlon’s first and flagship store in Australia.
Kerfoot completed the complete design, construction and fit out of the first Decathlon store in Australia.
The new store spans over 3,800 square metres, with over 2,000 meters of linear lights to ensure uniform illumination throughout the store.
The Tempe location is now serving as a fulfilment centre for Decathlon’s current online presence.
7,000 products are available from the store at launch, with over 70 staff members covering over 70 different sports.
We worked closely with Cockram, Ikea and Decathlon to identify all their needs and design the most appropriate lighting, electrical and communications solution to provide full functionality to the project and maximise space usage.
It’s arrival is expected to shake-up Australia’s lucrative sports equipment market, which is worth $1.3 billion. Sports shoes are currently worth $2.5 billion, while sportswear is worth $1.5 billion
