Yoga Mats, Fitness Bands, and Weights: Since the pandemic, sporting goods for the home have been rampant. “Sales of sporting goods have increased sevenfold in the past five years,” says a statement from Switzerland’s largest online retailer Digitec Galaxus.
Some sports fans may be pleased with Galaxus’ reaction to the onslaught on sporting goods: Decathlon products are now available in the online store. In cooperation, Galaxus is significantly expanding the range of sports.

French sports giant Decathlon already has several branches across Switzerland – including locations such as Zurich, Biel and Geneva. Sports fans can now also order part of the collection online from home.
The expansion of the sporting goods group is commensurate with the beginning of the year. According to Galaxus, January is one of the strongest sales months for the sports range. “Sporting goods have gone crazy here since the start of the pandemic,” the media release says. This is also associated with New Year’s resolutions, which are often sports in nature. (cnr)
