In May, DIY stores in France made an enormous jump in sales in France, even though stores only gradually opened again from 11 May. Sales went up by 24.52 per cent compared to May 2019 after they had lain at 50 and 60 per cent below the respective previous year's values in March and April. Mathieu Pivain, president of the DIY association FMB, who has published figures by the Banque de France, thus also speaks of "excellent results. This proves the robustness of the DIY market in France," he says, and "confirms the enthusiasm of the French for DIY".
