Five Insights from Kingfisher’s Innovation Day 2019

Executive Summary

The Coresight Research team attended Kingfisher’s Innovation Day 2019. Here are five insights:

  • A future Kingfisher CEO will have “freedom to maneuver,” but the key will remain to use Kingfisher’s scale to best effect, according to Chairman Andy Cosslett.
  • The future of retail will be polarized between marketplaces and design-led retailers; Kingfisher will be in the latter camp, said CEO Véronique Laury.
  • Under the proposition and product banner GoodHome, Kingfisher will “solve the nightmare” of DIY for consumers.
  • Kingfisher will focus on three store formats, on top of digital channels: Convenience, a new format termed “The Place,” and Screwfix.
  • Kingfisher expects to overhaul large stores to switch the focus from products to projects.
