Spain: Leroy Merlin reports 6.6% growth

The sales of Leroy Merlin España in 2018 totalled €2.182 bn, equivalent to growth of 6.6%. If the sales of the Aki chain, which also belongs to the French outfit Groupe Adeo and which has merged with Leroy Merlin in 2019, are taken into account, this gives total sales of €2.476 bn. Leroy Merlin increased its online sales by 20.8% to €47.3m. The Leroy Merlin and Aki chains now operate 137 stores between them in Spain. Seven new outlets are expected to open this year. 21 Aki stores are also being converted to the new Leroy Merlin Compact format, with Adeo investing €121.4m in this project. Overall 28 new store openings and 46 store conversions are planned within the next five years.
