reports that Chullanka, the French outdoor and cycling retailer formerly controlled by Decathlon, is to open its fourth store in Bordeaux next year. The expansion comes after Chullanka was taken over in April by its managers along with two investment companies, Compagnie d'Anjou and Notus Technologies. Chullanka reached an annual turnover of about €15.1 million through its three large stores in Antibes, Toulouse and Metz. Chullanka was launched in 2007 by Bruno Laurent, together with Decathlon. Following its management buyout in April, Chullanka has put an end to the sale of Decathlon's private labels in its stores, in favor of other brands such as Arc'teryx and Elémenterre. The company has recently recruited a director for its online sales, which should start next year.
