In November, sales compared to the same month last year did rise significantly once again with a plus of 6.93 per cent, however growth is a long way off from the double-digit growth rates since May. In October, it had amounted to almost 23 per cent. The figures from the Banque de France are regularly published by the French DIY retail association FMB.
