东京,10月21日(新华社)——日本连锁商店协会在周三的一份报告中称,9月份日本超市同店销售额比去年同期下降4.6%,这是5个月来的首次下降。


据该协会介绍,由于新冠病毒在国内和全球的大流行没有减弱的迹象,在记录期间,消费者在超市购物的支出明显减少。


具体地说,该协会说,近11000超市由56个公司,销售额为1.02万亿日元(96亿美元),与电器特别是支出较上年同期下降,部分原因是最后一分钟购物前上调消费税从8到10月1日的10%。


该协会称,随着越来越多的人在家工作,消费者在服装上的支出减少了23.5%,家庭用品、家用电器和药品的支出在创纪录时期也出现了显著下降。


该协会表示,由于新冠病毒的负面影响,公司的利润受到影响,今年冬天员工的奖金可能会降低或为零,这也是消费者逛超市消费减少的因素之一。


该协会的一位高级官员表示:“消费者越来越担心未来,预计会继续存钱。”


不过该协会称,食品销售是一个亮点,9月消费者支出较上年同期增长1.0%,其中切片蔬菜和生鱼片尤其受欢迎。

 

TOKYO, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- Japan's supermarket sales fell 4.6 percent from a year earlier on a same-store basis in September, marking the first drop in five months, the Japan Chain Stores Association said in a report on Wednesday.

According to the association, during the recording period consumers notably spent less while shopping in supermarkets owing to there being no signs of a let up in the novel coronavirus pandemic both domestically and globally.

Specifically, the association said that of almost 11,000 supermarkets operated by 56 companies, sales totaled 1.02 trillion yen (9.6 billion U.S. dollars), with outlays on electrical appliances notably declining from a year earlier, partly due to last minute shopping prior to the consumption tax hike from 8 to 10 percent on Oct. 1.

With more people staying at and working from home, the association said that consumers spent 23.5 percent less on clothes, with household products, home appliances and pharmaceuticals also seeing significant declines in spending in the recording period.

The prospect of lower or zero bonuses for workers this winter due to companies' bottom lines suffering from the downside elements of the novel coronavirus, also factored into consumers spending less during their supermarket visits, the association said.

"Consumers are increasingly concerned about the future and are expected to continue saving their money," a senior official of the association was quoted as saying.

Sales on food marked a bright spot however, the association said, with consumers spending 1.0 percent more in September from a year earlier, with sliced vegetables and sashimi finding particular favor.
