We are starting to recruit now in order to ensure proper personnel training and to be fully prepared for the official store opening in November, says Norman Decarie, president and CEO of Groupe SAIL Plein Air Inc. We are also taking advantage of the summer season to prepare the store and the warehouse. In addition to its competitive prices and vast product and brand selection, Kirkland’s Sportium store will offer customized customer service to sports lovers, from beginners to seasoned athletes.

Sportium invests significantly in training human resources. Store employees include running and personal training specialists, as well as cycling, hockey, and racquet sports enthusiasts. In each department, clients can consult experienced advisors who share their passion for sports and are determined to match the client with the right product and information. While the store’s sheer size is truly impressive, clients will receive the same attentive service as any specialty boutique.
