BRICOMARCHE

Founded in 1979, Bricomarché is the first retail brand for non-food products created by the Mousquetaires Group. It represents the largest French network of independent DIY specialists. Each sales outlet is run by an independent entrepreneur who has complete autonomy. It benefits from international procurement engineering, common warehouses, extensive logistics and an efficient I.T. network.

 

Like the other brands of the Group, Bricomarché's focus is on its customers. With "human-sized" retail outlets across France, it supports them in all their projects: construction, DIY, decoration, gardening and pet supplies.
