In a survey by Q & A Research & Consultancy under European consumers, the French retailer was judged best. Perfumery chain ICI Paris XL scored a second place and IKEA third in the election.
In particular Belgian consumers voted in favor of Decathlon because of the value for money the company offers as well as its product range.
