Clearly, between the covid and the sporting world it is not the great love. Already at the origin of the closure of training rooms, swimming pools and other structures, the virus is now singled out in the postponement of the inauguration of the Luxembourg’s first Decathlon store. Postponed for the first time from 2019 to January 12, 2020, the brand is forced to postpone its opening by a few weeks.

The opening of the sports accessories brand has been postponed due to the health crisis. Initially planned for last May, the store will finally open at the beginning of 2021, but at the Royal-Hamilius.


It is indeed difficult to organize the 630 m2 of accessories while “non-essential” shops are instructed to remain closed, at least, until January 10. AT Paperjam, Director Karine Blanc-Guivarch indicates that she hopes to be able to receive her first customers at the beginning of February from now on.

Here is a new twist in the saga of the shopping center in the heart of the city inaugurated in November 2019 which is struggling to fill its commercial cells. If the Meko restaurant will not finally be installed on the panoramic terrace of the Royal-Hamilius, the next expected opening concerns the restaurant chain Victorine. Already present at the station, in the center and rue des Bains, the restaurant is currently operating on a “take-away” basis.
