TOKYO — Japanese retailers had another tough year in 2007 due to unusually warm weather and a variety of economic factors.
As well as a warm winter, price increases caused by the strength of the euro against the yen, inflation and a falling stock market discouraged Japanese consumers from loosening their purse strings. As a result, Japanese department stores saw sales decline for the 11th consecutive year.
