TOKYO—Japan's department stores saw their June sales decline six percent, the Japan Department Stores Association said Friday.
Registering their 28th consecutive month of decline, the retailers' sales totaled 492.4 billion yen, or $5.42 billion at average exchange for the month. The association blamed poor sales in June on the appreciation of the yen coupled with the European financial crisis.
