In need of new running shoes? Tennis racket? Kayak? Sporting goods chain Decathlon has opened a new location in the Potrero Center mall at 2300 16th St. in the Mission.

This is the third U.S. outlet for the company, which was founded in France in 1976 and has since expanded to more than 1,600 locations around the world. This new store opens just months after Decathlon opened its Emeryville store earlier this year (its first U.S. location can be found on Market Street).

Located in the storefront of a former Office Depot, the new Decathlon boasts nearly 40,000 square feet of retail space, including product-testing zones. In the aisles, you'll find products from Decathlon's family of 40 brands, from apparel to bicycles and more.

With a five-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp so far, Decathlon has already made a good impression.

Leo A., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Nov. 16, wrote, "My favorite store for ANY sporting goods at the most affordable price! It is also, by far, the best quality you can get."

Yelper Terence L. noted, “Cheap prices and selection. Surprisingly cheap, actually."

Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Decathlon is open from 9 a.m.–9 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m.–8 p.m. on weekends.
