Castorama (French pronunciation: ​[kastoʁama]) is a French retailer of DIY and home improvement tools and supplies, part of the British group Kingfisher plc. It has its head office in Templemars, France.[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 DIY Warehouse format, based on the B&Q Warehouse fascia in the United Kingdom.

Poland (about fifty stores) and Russia (twenty stores), also have Castorama outlets. In Italy, some Castorama outlets existed, but were subsequently sold, and now they carry the Leroy Merlin brand. After a new online system was installed and caused a 25% drop in customer access plus a fall od 2.5% in sales. Marc Tenart was replaced as CEO in October 2018 by Christian Mazauric.
