Unless you just moved to Singapore from a far distant planet, the name Royal Sporting House means a lot to you. Known as RSH Limited, it’s an epicentre of retail sporting goods with a profile so grand, you might think it’s been around forever.
Shoppers are treated like family from the moment they arrive at Royal Sporting House stores until the moment they leave — even if they don’t buy a thing.
What will you find under the roof? Everything you desire to undertake the athletic endeavours that keep you strong, healthy and happy.
Need running shoes? Brand selection could leave you breathless. How about outfits? Whether you prefer a specific shorts manufacturer, won’t wear a sports bra unless it’s “your brand” or you can’t survive without gear that keeps you technologically ahead of your running game, if Royal Sporting House doesn’t have it, it may not exist.
Heaven for runners!
Take a deep breath before visiting the Royal Sporting House website so you get a preview of what awaits at the new store at VivoCity. Wear comfortable shoes when you visit because you’ll cover 3,860 square feet of space that’s filled with department after department of specialised sports merchandise.
Sure, you’ll want to hang out in the running section and why not? From adidas and ASICS to Under Armour and every brand in-between, Royal Sporting House is a one-stop-shop beloved by busy runners who want to be able to snag state-of-the-art trail shoes, the latest in compression pants and a simple water bottle during one fun shopping expedition.
As we said, Royal Sporting House goes the extra mile to treat shoppers like family, so in addition to carrying every brand under the sun, you’ll be invited to have an expert analysis of your running style undertaken by specialists.
Royal Sporting House is committed to making sure that the running shoes they sell you are appropriate so you avoid spending your hard-earned money on the wrong shoes. There’s no charge for this analysis, either.
According to Royal Sporting House employees, shoppers are often surprised to be offered this service and are frequently shocked to learn that they’ve been wearing shoes that neither fit properly nor are they suited to that runner’s favourite surface.
What to expect from your Royal Sporting House visit
First, erase from your mind all ideas of what a sporting goods store is supposed to look like, because the new Royal Sporting House has broken all of the rules.
If you feel more like you’re in a sleek, modern arena than a retail store, that’s the intent of architects and interior designers who have created a lofty, industrial-style space with open ceilings, dramatic grey pelmets and concrete flooring.
From the moment you enter, you experience a level of sophistication that is unprecedented in the world of athletic store interior design. If this remarkable space wins a few design awards down the road, don’t be surprised!
Once you take in the powerful environs and make your way through futuristic displays along aisles that are easy to navigate because even traffic patterns were factored into the layout of this cleverly-planned store, you will understand why Royal Sporting House continues to be called the “best sporting goods retailer in Asia”.
