Sales of household electrical appliances at major Japanese retailers slipped 1.87 percent in 2004 from the previous year to 1.98 trillion yen (approx. U.S. $19.1 billion), according to preliminary data.

The Nippon Electric Big-Stores Association said the preliminary data for the January-December period indicate a fourth straight yearly fall.

For December alone, retailer sales of such goods inched down 0.28 percent from a year earlier to 231.47 billion yen (approx. $2.2 million), marking the fifth consecutive monthly year-on-year drop.

The December sales dipped as declines in major items, including personal computers, refrigerators, washers, and air-conditioners, outweighed double-digit growth in sales of TV sets and DVD players and recorders, the association said. (The Japan Times)
