The leading French sporting goods retailer, Au Vieux Campeur, expects to report a 3 percent increase in its sales for the 12 months ended on Sept. 30, according to Sport-Guide, and its profit margin will be lower than before. According to the publication, the family-owned company has kept its margins below 2 percent for the past 73 years. The chain's revenues had risen at faster rates of 5.2 percent in 2011/12 and 7 percent in 2012/13. While its turnover is certainly lower than that of Décathlon's outdoor division in France, it is much higher than that of other French specialty outdoor retailers. According to Sport-Guide, the second-largest one is Frasteya with €20.2 million in 2013, followed by Chullanka, Glisshop and Expé.
