MANILA, FEBRUARY 2018 - When people think big retailers, they usually think American retail brands. Footlocker, Sports Authority, Dick’s Sporting Goods, to name a few. But few people think across the Atlantic, to the European giants.
September 9th 1968 INTERSPORT International Corporation was founded by ten national wholesale companies of Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. Today, INTERSPORT, a global leader in sporting goods retail, with a turnover of more than 10 billion euro and over 5 800 stores in 45 countries, opens in its 46th country, the Philippines.
On February 8, 2018, INTERSPORTS Philippines opened its very first store in Ayala Vertis North Mall, in the bustling heart of Quezon City, through local franchise partner, Planet Sports Incorporated. As stated by Visionary CEO, Anton Gonzalez, “The sports retail game in the Philippines is changing rapidly, and the Global Pinoy of today demands and deserves only the very best in product quality, value and expert service”. Ayala Vertis North Mall is Ayala Land’s new retail development in the North, right next to the well-loved Ayala Trinoma Mall.
