LEROY MERLIN, part of french Adeo Group and one of the major retailer on the worldwide DIY market, will build a second DIY store under the name Leroy Merlin in Katowice, Poland. It will be the tenth market store on the map of the Silesian Voivodeship region, which will join more than 60 Leroy Merlin stores in Poland. The new store will combine the function of a supermarket and an attractive meeting place.
The new Leroy Merlin store will be located in a historic place Baildon, an eternal forge and sawmill, famous for the production of building materials. At the beginning of the 19th century, John Baildon, a Scottish engineer considered to be the precursor of the contemporary iron and steel industry, transformed this place into a steelworks, which became part of Katowice’s consciousness as Huta Baildon.
In the Leroy Merlin Baildon store, with a total area of 10,000 sq m, there will be thirteen trading departments, with over 35,000 products.

In addition to design services, the store’s offer will also include assembly services for purchased products, as well as the possibility of adapting them to individual needs. It will be possible thanks to the points with carpentry and sewing services and the possibility of using the paint mixing point.
Regardless of the dimensions of the purchased goods, Leroy Merlin will also offer a delivery service. Available to customers, the market offers a spacious parking lot with 580 parking spaces, as well as a restaurant reflecting the historical atmosphere of Baildon Huta.
