That's correct and something I'm aware of. Hubo in Belgium is very
different from Hubo in the Netherland. The chains are not even owned
by the same entity.

Of course the problem with using size to distinguish between hardware
and doityourself is what to do with intermediary cases. How would you
classify, for instance, a store like this?
