DIY Retailing - Europe - May 2013

Given that the online channel takes a tiny share of sales in many of the major European markets, the figures for those who say they prefer to visit a store before buying are relatively low. The popularity of browsing for ideas and advice together with interest in checking stock or click-and-collect suggest possibilities for retailers to convert browsers into buyers.

This report series covers the 19 leading economies of Europe. In total these countries account for around 95% of all European retail sales, excluding Russia. The focus of the report is the DIY superstores, because these are now the dominant players in the sector. In many markets, core DIY – paint, wallpaper, screws, tools etc. – is now a small part of the DIY sector proposition. Many of the large European DIY retailers are broad-range home-improvement stores with substantial gardening ranges.
