Four major Japanese department store operators Friday posted record sales declines of 70% to 80% for April from a year before on a same-store basis, as they shut down across the country amid the coronavirus pandemic. Sales by Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings dropped 81.3%, and J. Front Retailing, which runs Daimaru and Matsuzakaya stores, had a 79.1% sales fall.
