In general, the number of store openings decreased in 2018 compared to 2017. Even Retailers are opening fewer new addresses. In France, the decline in terms of openings is real: 24,209 units in 2017 compared to 21,100 units in 2018, including 7,201 openings by "Retailers" in 2018 compared to 8,866 in 2017.

It should be noted that, on the French market, the "Clothing" sector no longer occupies the first place in terms of number of points of sale. It is dethroned by the "Services" sector. This is a sign that tends to provide clear evidence of the evolution of the distribution of consumption expenditure.

Despite these gloomy general trends, many Retailers are taking advantage of market circumstances to gain positions and develop their networks, both national and international. This is the case for the "Action" or "Tui" which are developing very strongly in each of the three countries studied. Other players are making remarkable national progress: "Burger King" in France, "Holland & Barrett" and "Intertoys" in the Netherlands, "Only" and "Switch" in Belgium.
