As the home and DIY sector continues to boom, Retail Week sits down with ManoMano founder and chief executive Christian Raisson to discuss the etailer’s bid for European domination.

ManoMano was launched eight years ago in France by Raisson and his friend and co-chief executive Philippe de Chanville – both of whom have spent time in London, which Raisson says gives the business a more international mindset.

The ecommerce retailer, which acts as a marketplace for home and DIY sellers, operates in six countries – France, Italy, the UK, Spain, Germany and Belgium – but Raisson has set his sights on the UK as a major growth market.
