Bricostore and Praktiker losing grip on Romanian DIY market

ZF reports that the original DIY operators in Romania, Praktiker and Bricostore, have spent the last three years losing their stranglehold on the market. They combined for 62.7% of a €700m market in 2007, but this fell to just 34.4% of a market that grew to €1bn by 2010. Do the math —  it’s not pretty. They’ve been overhauled by newcomers  BauMax, Hornbach and OBI.
