D.I.Y. is also accelerating in Norway.
Sales of D.I.Y. products in Norway grew by 26% in 2020, said Carl Otto Lovenskiold, responsible for the Lovenskiold-Vækero Co-Operative (65 Maxbo stores, from 600 sq. m.) to the DIY International publication. ” I have never, in my entire career, seen growth comparable to that in 2020,” he told John Herbert, General Secretary of the Edra/Ghin Association. E-commerce tripled in the second half of the year, now earning 10% of the company’s turnover. For the company, online sales represent an annual business of €550 million.
