French drive slowdown
The rapid advance of France’s click and collect drive outlets slowed significantly in the first quarter of 2015.
The latest statistics from the April 2015 issue of Rayon Boissons show that the total number of drives on 1 March 2015 was 3,358. The figure is still increasing, but only by 40 overall since 1 January, after 57 openings and 17 closures.
The top 5 drive retailers by number of outlets on 1 March were Intermarché on 977, Courses U on 619, Leclerc on 562, Carrefour on 457 and Casino on 213.
