New DIY website

Cdiscount has launched an online DIY store,, along with a dedicated webzine.

According to Cdiscount, the new site has been driven by the ambition to provide beginning and experienced DIY enthusiasts with every possible, practical solution.

Covering every aspect of the home – tools and hardware, electrical, plumbing, kitchen, bath, paint and finishes, landscaping and gardening – more than 50,000 products are available either directly through the site or through partner vendors in the site’s marketplace.

The selection includes leading DIY brands such as Makita, Kärcher, Bosch, Black & Decker, Ryobi and Facom, and offers the best value for money in the market.  Backed by their industry-specific experience and uniquely shaped experience, Cdiscount’s buyers know how to identify the best bargains, the retailer claims. Some 100,000 items will become rapidly available to shoppers as the site’s marketplace develops.

Like its older brother, the new website gives consumers access to a webzine full of advice and tips. Brico Mag contains a number of tutorials with step-by-step instructions for:

–          putting up a plasterboard partition;

–          servicing a water heater, insulating a ceiling;

–          replacing a window pane or unclogging a drain.

In addition, DIY enthusiasts will find shopping guides that provide critical information for finding what they need, whether a steam cleaner or high-pressure washer, electric or cordless power drill, synthetic or natural insulation, etc, Cdiscount reports.
