Castorama (French pronunciation: ​[kastoʁama]) is a French retailer of DIY and home improvement tools and supplies, headquartered in Templemars, France, and is part of the British group Kingfisher plc, which has 101 stores in France, seventy six in Poland and twenty in Russia.[1] The company became a subsidiary of Kingfisher plc in May 2002, along with Castorama's own subsidiary Brico Dépôt.[2]

Some outlets have been converted or relocated under the Brico Dépôt format 'DIY Warehouse', based on the B&Q Warehouse fascia in the United Kingdom. In February 2009, Kingfisher sold thirty one stores of Castorama in Italy to French retailer Leroy Merlin.
