Capvern’s Sport 2000 store is open Wednesday. The key to recruitment and new perspectives.
Stéphanie and Jean-Marc Durand, the managers of this brand, come from the Paris region. It is a family project and the love for the region, but above all the quality of life that made them decide to settle in 2014 with their 2 children. It was for love and during the war that a woman, her great-grandmother Jeanne, together with her daughter Simone (Stéphanie’s grandmother) took refuge in the free zone of St Roch in the Bigorre Valley, after which she developed close friendships that have endured with Simone and Nicole (Stéphanie’s mother who settled in Bagnères-de-Bigorre when she retired).
Jean-Marc comes from the Hautes-Alpes and is passionate about the mountains. He says: “In turn, we took the plunge and found our cocoon, compared to the crazy life of Paris. In Bigorre, we have created genuine friendships in the valleys! We feel lucky to admire this beautiful region and the Pic du Midi every morning!”
Stéphanie and Jean-Marc have been working in mass distribution for 30 years in various fields of purchasing and marketing, trade is their department and a customer is sacred! An anecdote “At the time we came to my mother’s house on vacation and on every mountaineering expedition or tennis match to rest ourselves, we went to Tarbes. I told my husband that it was not normal not to find a specialized store. And then he told he me why not us!” Thus began our adventure.
We are an independent and family group, open since 2014, which has chosen the Sport 2000 brand for its 100% sports and fashion values with the novelties of modern trade adapted to local and modern trade. We employ 25 people in the different valleys where we opened Pouzac, Gourdan-Polignan and today Capvern.
We have 3 totally local “shock” teams. They are all people with a passion for the mountains and the Pyrenees. It is a team of professionals who can advise you and always welcome you.
We are mountain and multisport specialists as well as a very special jersey fitting service for clubs and companies. The seasoned athlete or not, has to travel many miles to find a sports equipment specialist. Sport in all its forms, whatever it is, finds its answer when entering our store. Do not hesitate to entrust us with your project.
The store in Capvern (ex Brico Marché), covers 1000 m², including 800 m² of sales space with a choice of references dedicated to sports and fashion, but to meet clubs and companies we have an extensive catalog for these professionals (firefighters, police, sports clubs, rugby, football, etc.).
Our brand inspires this DNA that is 100% local, sporty and fashionable. Our goal is to equip the sportsman’s locker room, leisure or competition. What drives us is the advice, for every person who comes in, its satisfaction is our priority. We are 100% top sports and fashion brands. We are suitable for the mountains in all seasons. We offer prices for the whole family with a wide choice of “sportswear and trends” fashion.
We have an innovative loyalty program, “a loyalty program”, which is very generous and fully digital to help develop the sport. Thanks to this tool you get benefits with “loyalty and the sports booklet” (up to € 40 direct 100% digital benefits). It’s free and you have to ask for it at the box office or on SPORT2000.FR We are aware that the people who come don’t come just for themselves, but to offer gifts to relatives or friends. That’s why we offer 100 days to change the item.
Before the opening, we are going to set up a mechanism or a purchased item, the second at – 50% in textiles or shoes and besides, we are so happy to open in this place that we offer 1 year of shoes or gift cards by lottery.
