JUMBO is Switzerland’s leading DIY store chain with 124 sales outlets nationwide. It is headquartered in Dietlikon in the Canton of Zurich. JUMBO employs more than 3,500 people. The overall product range includes some 75,000 items in physical stores, and significantly more online. Store sizes range from compact inner-city formats to large stores in urban areas.
JUMBO is a division of Coop Cooperative with an independent brand identity. Coop took over JUMBO in 2021 from Maus Frères Holding, merging it with the existing Coop DIY segment in 2022. The current JUMBO was therefore formed by the merger of the two leading Swiss DIY chains, making it the undisputed number one.
