The Mr. Bricolage stores in France recorded sales of € 690,2 mio in the first half of 2017.

The French DIY retail group Mr. Bricolage, which also owns the Les Briconautes distribution channel, saw its sales decline in the first six months of 2017. Revenues in the order of € 1.0507 bn were 1.3 per cent below the volume for the same period in the previous year. Like-for-like sales were down by 0.1 per cent.

In France, the group's 712 stores recorded sales of € 932.9 mio, 2.0 per cent lower than in 2016, while like-for-like sales were down 0.7 per cent. The Les Briconautes outlets fared better, with a downturn in sales of 0.8 per cent and no change in like-for-like sales. However, this distribution channel's half-yearly sales of € 108.0 mio are much smaller than those of the stores under the Mr. Bricolage brand (€ 690,2 mio, -1.1 per cent, like-for-like -0.7 per cent). Affiliated stores not operating under any of the retail brands recorded a significant drop in sales of 7.1 per cent to € 134.7 mio.

A more positive picture emerged abroad. The total foreign sales of Mr. Bricolage in the first six months of 2017 rose by 4.6 per cent (like-for-like 4.2 per cent) to € 117.8 mio. Most of Mr. Bricolage's foreign stores are in Belgium (46 stores, 58.6 per cent share of sales abroad), where the group saw an increase in sales of 10.8 per cent.
