The origins of Leroy Merlin
In 1923, husband-and-wife team Adolphe Leroy and Rose Merlin flexed their entrepreneurial skills by opening ‘Stock Américain’, an American military surplus store in France. As this venture proved quite successful, the team enhanced their business by adding DIY products and various building materials at moderate prices. Eventually, the company name changed to Leroy Merlin as business blossomed and more branches opened, among other locations in Spain, Portugal, Poland, and China. And finally, in 2018, the first South African Leroy Merlin branch (Greenstone) opened in Edenvale. Met with enthusiasm by South Africans, two more stores quickly popped up in Gauteng.
Today, every Leroy Merlin store offers between 30,000 – 60,000 products to inspire customers on kitchen designs, gardening techniques, DIY tasks, home improvement projects, and much more.
Opening a new Leroy Merlin store extends beyond simply another branch that sells gardening tools. It also benefits a city/town and its residents, for a new store means approximately 150 fresh employment opportunities. In terms of suppliers, a new Leroy Merlin branch also presents the potential to access the international market, which could mean an even bigger variety of bathroom tiles, household cleaning supplies, and more.
For customer peace of mind, Leroy Merlin is also committed to its quality-control procedures, thereby ensuring clients have access to not only working products, but also high-quality brands. Some of the brands available in the Leroy Merlin stores include but are not limited to Lexman electrical, Standers hardware, Artens cabinetry, Luxens paint, and Geolia plant- and garden care.
