MIAMI, FLORIDA July 24, 2017 – Mi9 Retail is pleased to announce that GO Sport Group, a leading sports equipment retail group in Europe, has selected the Mi9 Retail POS (point of sale), Customer Engagement, and Merchandising suite to run its corporate head office and 389 owned and franchised stores in France and Poland.
The Mi9 Retail software suite, which will power all the GO Sport Group sales outlets, will enable the company to both centralize its store operations and reduce system management costs as part of its omni-channel commerce strategy.

About GO Sport Group
Founded in the heart of the Alps following the Winter Olympic Games in Grenoble, the group that would ultimately give rise to GO Sport and then Courir was created in the late 1970s. Over the years, GO Sport has developed into one of the leading sporting goods stores, while Courir has set a new benchmark for the sneaker fashion industry. Incorporated into GO Sport Group in 2014, Twinner is a network of stores that emphasizes the values of authenticity and connection to nature. These three brands gradually grew in France and steadily developed in other countries, first in Poland, where GO Sport launched in 1999, and then on all continents, with the rapid success of the master franchise and a leading position in the Middle East. Performance, teamwork, enjoyment and customer focus motivate our 4,600 employees in France and abroad every day.
