Number of DIY retail stores in Sweden 2003-2015

This statistic shows the number of DIY retail stores in Sweden from 2003 to 2015. In 2015, there were 558 retail shops selling so-called ‘do-it-yourself’ (DIY) goods in Sweden. In the past 13 years, there was a slight increase in the total number of such stores in Sweden. A constant growth began in 2010, where the number of stores amounted to 481. Four years later, in 2014, there were 562 DIY stores in Sweden. In the years between 2003 and 2009, the shop number fluctuated. It struggled with hitting a low of 476 stores in 2004 and registered a peak of 550 stores in 2007.

The leading DIY retailers in Sweden, based on the number of stores, are Woody Bygghandel, owned by Interpares, ahead of Clas Ohlson and Rusta. Woody Bygghandel had 100 stores in 2015, but its development in the number of stores was ruled by steady fluctuation in the past five years. The number of stores of Clas Ohlson increased continuously, reaching a total of 84 in 2015. In the same year, Rusta had 80 stores. For this retailer, an opposite development can be observed for the past five years as its number of stores decreased constantly.
