Mr. Bricolage is a French retail chain offering home improvement and do-it-yourself goods. The company has around 80 shops and 435 franchise stores across France and also has operations across numerous European countries, as well as in South America and North Africa.
Mr Bricolage was founded in the early 1964 as the Action Nationale des Promoteurs du Faite-le-vous-même (ANPF), the direct French translation of `do-it-yourself' by the Tabur family who were keen to promote the fast-growing new hobby of DIY.
Originally, each store had its own name. In 1980, all the stores were united under a single brand: Mr.Bricolage. The ANPF was a cooperative organization that, as a holding company, converted its status in 1995 to that of a limited liability company in order to be able to raise outside capital. The company floated in 2000 on the Euronext Paris.
