Your Favorite Fitness and Sports Stores Are Finally Reopening. Here's What You Need to Know
Fitness nuts, take note: All three massive branches of Decathlon Philippines will finally be open to the public on May 18.
Both the Masinag branch and Tiendesitas branch reopened on May 16, the first day of the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ). The Alabang branch, however, is reopening today.
As in many business establishments, expect a whole host of safety procedures inside the stores. According to the safety guidelines published on their website, they will be strictly enforcing a cap on the number of people who can be inside the store—around 15 square meters per person. For reference, the Alabang branch is 4,000 square meters, so that’s around 267 people max, give or take.
Alcohol will also be provided in strategic locations around each branch. Temperature checks will be done at the entrance, where you’ll also need to sanitize your hands. Face masks, of course, are required.
This weekend, Toby’s Sports also announced that they are planning to unveil a “game plan” for the reopening of their stores.
Chris Sports has also implemented a phased reopening of its branches. The stores in Kamuning and Ayala Harbor Point Subic will reopen on May 18, followed the next day by a whole host of branches inside SM malls across the country.
