This is the ultimate end for the sportswear specialists, after an end in Essen was already considered for the start of 2016. Then, as now, the closure was discussed along economic grounds. The store was claimed to be too large at 5,500 square meters and thereby “not economically successful.”
After this, SportScheck still has 19 branches in Germany, whereby the store areas here still range between 2,000 and 5,000 square meters. Only the branch in Reutlingen is somewhat smaller, at 1,500 square meters.
