The 320 stores under the brand Mr. Bricolage lost 5.20 per cent in the first half of 2018.

The French DIY store group Mr. Bricolage closed the first half of the year with a decline in sales. With an overall volume of EUR 1.0073 bn, sales made by the affiliated 761 stores lay 4.13 per cent below the previous year's value. Like-for-like, the decline amounted to 0.44 per cent.

The 694 stores in France made EUR 887.7 mio and thus 4.85 mio per cent less than in the same period last year (like-for-like: -1.29 per cent). The decline of the sales channel les Briconautes at -14.11 per cent (EUR 92.7 mio) was much more severe than for the 320 stores under the brand Mr. Bricolage who lost 5.20 per cent (EUR 887.7 mio). In particular the Mr. Bricolage stores operated by the headquarters lost out (-4.42 per cent). In contrast, the traders who aren't connected to any brand achieved most growth; they increased their sales by 3.58 per cent to EUR 139.7 mio.

The 67 affiliated stores abroad also grew, namely by 1.56 per cent (like-for-like 5.32 per cent) to EUR 119.6 mio. In particular the 45 stores in Belgium and the 11 Bulgarian stores increased their sales.
