E.Leclerc (informally simply Leclerc, French pronunciation: ​[ləklɛʁ]) is a French cooperative society and hypermarket chain, headquartered in Ivry-sur-Seine.[1] E.Leclerc was established on 1 January 1948 by Édouard Leclerc.[2][3] E.Leclerc currently has more than 500 locations in France and 114 stores outside of the country, as of 2012.[2] The chain enables semi-independent stores to operate under the Leclerc brand.

Own brand ranges come under the Marque Repère and Eco+ banners. Some larger hypermarkets have a separate entertainment/multimedia section, under the name of Espace Culturel. E.leclerc operates numerous stores and services around France, some near and in cities and towns while most of them are located just outside or in the hypermarkets and shopping centres.
