JD Sports will be opening next year its first store in downtown Paris, following several openings in France, including in the Parisian suburbs. According to reports by sport-guide.com, the new store will be in the 2,200-square-meter space formerly occupied by H&M at 118-120 rue de Rivoli, right across from Foot Locker and Courir. The store is set to open after renovations in spring 2020. The British sporting goods retailer, which already has many other stores in France, opened its first Austrian store in Vienna in July.
