Decathlon has opened a small store in Canary Wharf Tube station.

The sports store is offering a short term click and collect service from the unit, which is linked with its Surrey Quays store – one of the largest of the brand’s outlets in the UK.

A Decathlon spokesman said: “The footfall going through Canary Wharf is a vast amount and we want to attract those travelling in and out to make it easier for them to get the products they need.

“In store, as we have limited space, we have those things people may need to grab quickly before they go to the gym such as nutritional packs, bags or running tops.

“The store also features our new digital screens that customers can use to order.”
