This travel and sports retailer lets you test their products before you buy it! – Decathlon Philippines

The opening of the very first Decathlon‘s physical store in the Philippines was a blast as this European travel and sports retailer has been known to deal quality yet affordable products. The struggle in resisting to shop is real as the items are really tempting that visiting without purchasing anything would make you feel regretful.
I have personally proven how good these were as most of my travel items are from this store. So if you are also looking for a place where you can go get the necessary travel and sports equipment, don’t think twice about going to Decathlon.

Decathlon Physical Stores

There are three Decathlon physical stores at the moment. The first one is at Alabang (UGF of Festival Mall). The second one is at Pasig City (Tiendesitas) recently followed by the opening of the Decathlon Masinag Branch. It has been deemed by sports and travels enthusiast as a heaven as it is a one-stop-shop for all the items that they need and would ever want for their hobbies. More so, the items are of good quality at a very affordable price. They also hire staff who know the area of sports where they are assigned well for better customer service.

They let you test their products before buying it!

I got a friend who knew someone from Decathlon Dasmarinas and told me that they let the customers try and test and the products before buying it. With no further ado, I went straight to the store and checked on their newest release – the low volume mask for diving.
Since I have been diving for frequently, I am looking for the perfect equipment that would best suit me in this hobby.
Upon arrival, I asked their staff about their product test. Karl, Sir Dino and Sir Joebert assisted me. They helped me with the process. They handed me the low volume mask that really looked sleek and proceeded to the Welcoming Desk near the cashier.

An ID has to be submitted, signing of some stuff had to be done then voila, I’m off! Finally ready to use the product. It was stated in the paper that they have given me that the item shall be returned to the store (of course, in good condition if I’m not to buy it) or it shall incur charges otherwise. There won’t be much of a problem shall I decide to purchase it.

Decathlon encourages clients who decide to test their products to post a review or a feedback about the items that they have tried. In that case, here’s my honest review of SUBEA complete freediving gear.
