Here are my favourite addresses for shopping hardware, tools and supplies near Le Touquet.
The closest big retailers around Le Touquet are Leroy Merlin and Weldom. Both stores offer a wide selection of entry to middle range tools and supplies. Everything you need for your home improvements, construction projects and gardening.
Leroy Merlin is located in Merlimont (10km from Le Touquet towards Berck-sur-mer).
A few facts:
- Leroy Merlin is the number 1 DIY and home improvement retailing company in France. Merlimont is one of their largest store with a space of over 7,000 m2.
- It is one of the first hardware retail store to ever open in France (it opened in 1952!). Before that you had to get your hardware through your local craftsmen.
If you are looking for affordable tools, check their in-house brand Dexter.
You can check their real-time stock online. It is also possible to buy online and pick up a few hours later.

Weldom is closer to Le Touquet. It is located in Etaples-sur-mer (only 5km away).
Although much smaller than Leroy Merlin, there is a high chance that you will find what you need there too.
Weldom and Leroy Merlin belong to the same group (Adeo). They carry the same products at similar prices.

24 Boulevard Bigot Descelers
If you are looking for a more authentic experience and want to support local business, here are a few places you can go to.
"Quincaillerie" is french for hardware store. The store is located in Montreuil-sur-mer, across the street from the Theatre.
The store, which opened in the late 60's, is a real Aladdin's Cave. Its atmosphere perfectly fits into the ageless beauty of the city. If a project requires aged hardware (restoring an old cabinet for example) this is definitely the place to go.
41 Place du Général de Gaulle
Lamour Frères is a fuel and construction material supplier.
Their catalog offers construction and framework material, bathroom, floor tiles and parquet flooring. They also provide a waste bin rental service (that can come in handy).
ZI boulevard du Valigot
As their name suggest, Bigot Matériaux focuses on construction materials. They will be helpful for your heavier, structural projects (masonry, concrete, framework, roofing, etc.).
