June 9: Visiting the manufacturing and sales home of our Oxelo Town 9 kick scooters

>> Our interest in the sports shop, Decathlon, stems from its sale of the Oxelo-brand kick scooters, especially its Town 9 and Town 7 SUSP, that I recommend on my site, www.LetsKickScoot.com. Phil, in fact, brought his Town 9 with him on this trip, while I had to leave mine home due to my injured leg.

Decathlon is a manufacturer and large, international sports shop, with Oxelo being one of its brands. Unfortunately, although it has over 850 stores in 21 countries, none are in the USA. The only way Oxelo scooters can be acquired in North America is to actually travel to one of their stores, or have someone "overseas" purchase and ship it back.

The Store
Once inside a Decathlon, I was surprised at the array of sports-related merchandise it sold and its rock-bottom prices in euros (at this writing, the exchange rate was 1-euro to $1.10). IMHO, Decathlon practically gave away women's swim suites and their selection of T-shirts in a wide range of sizes was so extensive (and reasonably priced) that I purchased several.

Basically, Decathlon sells everything related to active lifestyles, from toddler to senior citizens. This company tried to get a foothold in the USA several years ago, but pulled out. This was a real loss to the States!

The following photos will give you an idea of Decathlon's store size and how they display goods. They did not have an Oxelo Town 9 during our visit, but a clerk said she could order it:
