“Les Mousquetaires” are a network of 3101 independent entrepreneurs totalizing 3931 stores in Europe for a total surface of 6.4 billion square meters. The Group consists of 8 banners that focus on food, DIY and car maintenance and repair service.
Founded in 1969, INTERMARCHE is positioned as a specialist in fresh self-service products and traditional product departments. With almost 2,400 retail outlets in Europe, INTERMARCHE exists in four formats, each corresponding to catchment areas and adapted to all types of customers.
Netto is the hard discount banner of Les Mousquetaires. It consists of human-sized stores with a surface area comprised between 850 sqm and 1000 sqm.
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. In France, Bricomarché ranks number 3 on the DIY market. The retail chain also has stores in Poland (156 stores), and in Portugal (40 stores).
In an environment where the watchword of more and more consumers is "do it yourself", Brico Cash meets the needs of amateurs and professionals alike. The demand for quality products at low prices is proof that the warehouse concept is a valid one when facing DIY hypermarkets. With its 33 points of sale in France, Brico Cash has been developing steadily since 2010.
Bricorama is the third DIY banner of the Mousquetaires Group. Founded in 1975, it joined the group in 2018 to expand its DIY network alongside with Bricomarché and Brico Cash. There are currently 170 Bricorama stores and they are located in urban areas.
Founded in 2004, Roady offers car maintenance and repair services, coupled with a sales area for equipment and accessories. There is today a total of 146 car maintenance centres, with 114 in France and 32 in Portugal.
American Car Wash
The American Car Wash centres joined the Mousquetaires Group in July 2018 to complete its offer on vehicle services. There are currently 32 car wash centres in France.
Rapid Pare-Brise joined the Mousquetaires Group in 2018. With over 217 locations in France, Rapide Pare-Brise ranks number four amongst the specialists of vehicle glass repair and replacement service.
