Leading DIY retailers in Belgium 2010-2015, by number of stores

In 2015, Belgium’s leading DIY retailer was Brico, with 147 stores countrywide. Brico was however closely followed by a second Belgian chain, Hubo, which had 140 branches. Gamma, the leading DIY retailer in neighboring country the Netherlands, was the third largest player on the Belgian DIY market.

 DIY retail floor space 

  When looking at the retail floor space, one DIY retailer outranked Brico in Belgium. In 2015, Hubo had a slightly larger retail space, amounting to roughly 388,000 square meters. By comparison, Brico’s retail floor space in Belgium reached nearly 358,000 square meters that year. 

DIY chain store density

  Despite the presence of a number of large national and international DIY chains in the country, the majority of the DIY stores in Belgium did not belong to a chain. On the contrary: over three quarters of Belgian DIY retailers were independent stores. However, as the distribution of the shop floor area shows, these were often small stores. Of the total DIY retail shop floor, over 60 percent belonged to DIY retail chains.
