There are also 16 open in Spain and 5 open in Poland.[citation needed]. Some were also opened in Bucharest, Romania.

Concept[edit]

The store's biggest customer is the Construction and Building trade,[4] as Brico Dépôt sells wholesale and in large stock and quantity. The Brico Dépôt format is largely based on the format of an American Company, The Home Depot.[citation needed]
