There are more than 700 stores in France operating under the brands Mr. Bricolage and Les Briconautes.

The stricken French home improvement retail cooperative Mr. Bricolage has now sold 59 of its 65 stores owned by the headquarters. 49 of the locations have been taken over by members of the group. Management at the headquarters found no buyer for six stores; these are to be closed. The headquarters started selling its own stores in December 2018 as part of the "Rebond" strategic plan.

However this plan intends to expand the entire store network. 1 000 outlets are targeted by 2028. Currently (30 November 2019) 712 locations in France belong to the group under the brands Mr. Bricolage and Les Briconautes. In addition there are 70 stores in nine further countries. To date, ten Mr. Bricolage stores are implementing the new "four pillars" concept.
