B&Q is Kingfisher's main sales channel in Great Britain and Ireland.

From the start of May to 10 July 2021, the British Kingfisher group made like-for-like 1.3 per cent less sales than in the comparative period 2020 which, however, had shown extremely high sales. In comparison to the respective period in 2019, Europe's second largest DIY trading group increased its sales, however, by 22.3 per cent. E-commerce sales have risen since then by 188.2 per cent, so they have almost tripled. These figures have already been published by Kingfisher before the end of the second quarter (31 July 2021).

A plus compared to 2020 is reported by the group for the almost two-and-a-half months from Great Britain and Ireland (3.3 per cent), Romania (12.3 per cent) as well as Spain and Portugal (19.6 per cent). In contrast, the sales volume in France lay 8.9 per cent below the corresponding previous year's level. In Poland there was a close minus of 0.4 per cent. Sales in e-commerce sank by 6.1 per cent.

In contrast, in the two-year comparison, there were double-digit growth rates in all countries, for example in Great Britain and Ireland 25.7 per cent, in France 19.1 per cent.
