Castorama is the market leader in Poland with over 70 stores and sales which reached the £1bn mark in 2008/09.
Poland has a large, mostly home-owning population with good DIY skills. The Castorama stores are therefore particularly
strong in 'harder' DIY products, though more decorative products are also being added.
In 2009 Castorama Poland sold more than 39 million square metres of paint foil, enough to cover the whole Princedom of Liechtenstein and 70 million metres of paint tape, enough to stretch around the equator twice.
