Member News | Lithuanian birch sap in a cocktail glass

June 23, 2022

“Novice bartenders are more concerned with training their memory and memorising the ingredients of classic cocktails, while experienced bartenders are more likely to suffer from creative torment: how to create something new and untried? What can you do to surprise bar-goers who have seen it all? Anything, but certainly not overseas products. For those who mix the world up, the exotic is becoming less and less exotic. Perhaps the answer is just around the corner? Something that has been quietly with us since ancient times?

 

Birch sap is one such revival. For some, it is a nostalgic memory of childhood visits to the countryside. But asphalt kids – like the author of these lines – have only heard of the magical birch elixir… until stylish bottles of sap started to line the shelves of the city’s cafés, boutiques and fashionable bars. Today, gastronomy is increasingly turning to natural flavours found in nature. This trend does not exclude beverages. Bartenders are slowly discovering an unexpected ingredient – Lithuanian birch sap – which is becoming a much sought-after wow element in the usual cocktail. […]”

Member News | First Decathlon store opened in Klaipėda

Member News | First Decathlon store opened in Klaipėda

June 16, 2022

French sports goods chain Decathlon continues its expansion in Lithuania - on Saturday, the first store of the chain opened in Klaipėda and the second one in our country, with an investment of EUR 5.85 million.

The 2,400 sqm store on Baltic Avenue offers sporting goods for a wide range of sports, from paddle boards to tents. 25 new jobs have been created and the employees have already gained experience in the chain’s store in Vilnius.


According to Nicolas Fogola, Decathlon Lietuva’s CEO, the new store in Klaipėda is part of the chain’s strategic development plan. Decathlon is scheduled to open in Kaunas later this year.


“We believe that we are helping even more people in Lithuania to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Sport should be accessible to everyone. That is why our employees, who are active sports enthusiasts themselves, are ready to help each and every visitor to the store,” says the head of Decathlon Lithuania.


To make the choice easier for customers, he says, some products can be tested in dedicated sports areas. This will also be possible in the soft-surfaced basketball court adjacent to the store, which will also host various sporting events.
The shop will also have a workshop offering bicycle repair services. A car park next to Decathlon will accommodate 168 cars, almost double the required retail space.


According to Aurimas Martinkėnas of Galio group, the company that developed the project, the Decathlon building in Klaipėda meets the A+ energy efficiency class and is unique in its appearance in the global chain. At the request of the municipality, Decathlon made a rare exception by using clinker brick inlays in the building’s decoration to harmoniously blend in with the colour and aesthetics of the port city.
The construction of the store was carried out by Baltijos pašvaistė.


The ribbon cutting to mark the opening of the shop took place with Ms Justina Kreivenaite, Store Manager, Nicolas Fogola, CEO Decathlon Baltic and honorary representative, Olivier Criou, Honorary Consul of France in the Klaipeda region and also member of the CCFL. 

| Decathlon Lietuva

Decathlon opened its first store in Lithuania in 2018 in Vilnius. More than 15,000 sports and leisure products are also available online at Decathlon.lt.
Founded in 1976, Decathlon currently operates more than 2,000 stores in 56 countries around the world, employing over 100,000 people.
