All stores together have over 1 million m² of retail space and receive more than 1.5 million customers in-store and online every week.
Maxeda's strategy is to make life easier for the customer. We are committed to simplifying everything for the customer, both in-store and online. With the 'Make it Easy' strategy, we want to make it easier for our makers through five growth engines (Store, Product, People, Digital and Home), so that we can create a seamless omnichannel customer experience and become top-of-mind at DIY customers in the Benelux. The growth engines include various projects and initiatives. Consider, for example, selling and renting out solar panels (Home), renewing stores(Store), an online learning environment (People), introducing a new own brand of paint (Product) and expanding the number of online orders via the distribution center (Digital).
