Why you should visit the United States: a list of the best sporting goods store in the world
Posted On July 13, 2021
Sports goods retailer Wal-Mart is taking a step forward by opening a new store in Israel and opening a second store in Jerusalem.
The US-based sports goods retailer will open the store at the Israel-based mall at the start of next month, the company announced Thursday.
Wal-Mart’s decision to open its first store in Israeli shopping centers was announced last year, and the company plans to open a second location by the end of 2018.
The store will include sports gear, apparel and accessories as well as other items that include sneakers, baseball caps, baseball hats, baseball gloves, hockey pads, tennis shoes, hockey pants and more.
The chain is looking to expand into other parts of the world, especially China, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in January, adding that the stores will open up in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Jerusalem-Beit She’an.
Walmart is the world’s largest sports retailer and is a major player in the online-retail sector.
The retailer sells sporting goods from a variety of brands, including Nike, Under Armour, Reebok, Target, Adidas and more, but its main focus is on shoes, apparel, accessories and other sports apparel.
Its main competitors include Amazon.com, Nike and Adidas.
WalMart is one of the few major retailers that has not closed down in the last few years, and it has been growing at a fast pace, even as its competitor Amazon has also been closing its online store operations.
According to the company’s annual report, it is expected to be a $5 billion company by 2019.
