The Super Retail Group with Rebel and Amart will lose the most when decathlon enters the local market.
\"The arrival of Decathlon will undoubtedly shake the sporting goods and clothing market,\" said Roy Morgan\'s chief executive, Michelle Levin . \".
\"It\'s called category killer \'.
However, while decathlon may be good

Craig Woolford, retail analyst at Citi, warned last month that the super-retail business could lose 4% of its revenue and the previous 7% --
Within a decade of tax revenue, price competition from Decathlon further eroded the industry\'s profit margin.
A price survey comparing Amart with Decathlon found that Amart is usually cheaper in sports equipment, but Decathlon\'s private brand clothing prices are much lower.
Woolford found that Decathlon\'s own brand offer is 50-70 cheaper than the lowest price
Cost branded products pose a greater threat to discount department stores such as Kmart and W than Amart.
\"The price difference between decathlon and Amart is not very obvious in the sports equipment category, especially when comparing private label products,\" he wrote . \".
\"On entry-level private branded sports devices, Decathlon is more expensive than Amart.
In addition, we observed that in Amart, more versatile sports equipment such as golf, dumbbells and leg guards are cheaper than alternative private labels offered by decathlon.
He said: \"In general, the slow launch of stores will mean that any impact on Australian retailers will be gradual, and the lack of branded products may slow growth --up.
Twice the size of fashion stores in the Rebel and Amart stores can also be a challenge.
Mr. Woolford pointed out that,
Format retailer, available on good website
The population is scarce and the quality is high.
\"Ensuring a good website is the key to the success of any retailer,\" he wrote . \".
\"The company says it focuses on sites located in large areas of the outer suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne.
\"Given that these centers are far from the main shopping malls, he predicts that direct competition with the rebels is limited, but direct competition with Amart is more risky.
\"Rebel has a balanced portfolio of stores that are biased towards new states and Victoria,\" he wrote . \".
\"Amart has its own features on the East Coast, with half of its stores concentrated in the Queensland market.
Due to this concern, we expect that the initial impact of Decathlon\'s entry into Australia may be small for the Amart and Super Retail sports sectors. ”frank. chung@news. com.
