Matalan’s Sporting Pro opens first store

Matalan’s sports fascia Intersport Sporting Pro is kicking off its retail launch with a store opening in Stockport.

The sports store has signed a deal at the city’s Peel Centre to take a 10,000 sq ft unit adjacent to Next on a 10-year lease.

Headed up by former JJB chief executive Tom Knight, Intersport Sporting Pro will open 15 stores across the UK before Christmas.

The Matalan-owned chain will feature a strong women’s presence with a range of footwear and clothing from brands including Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Asics, Reebok, Kappa and Canterbury.

The store will also offer additional services including gait analysis and custom fit insoles.

Knight said staff would be “fully trained and knowledgeable” in their field.
