In Denmark, however, XXL customers will only be able to shop online.

In 2015, the company made 5.1 billion kroner in revenue and 570 million kroner in operating profits.

On the Danish market, XXL will face strong competition from other large retail chains such as Sportsmaster, Stadium, Intersport and Sportigan.
