Kant, one of the most respected sports retailers in Russia, will soon have its own branded shop-in-shops in one or more Decathlon stores in Moscow and elsewhere in the country, measuring between 600 and 1,000 square meters. This is a first for both retailers. Kant is one of the major sporting goods retailers in Russia, operating 14 stores in the country with a high technical image including a flagship in Moscow that has its own ski ramp. It also has a very active web store. Kant is also the exclusive distributor in Russia for a number of brands including Elan, Alpina, Salewa, Hamax, Buff, Black Fire, Jones, Now, FTWO, Focus, Rocky Mountain, Kama, Howl, Matt, Romp and Reima. The news about its tie-up with Decathlon has led a few other brands to propose deals with Kant. More in SGI Europe.
