IS JAPAN COOL? DISCOVER

家電量販店

Electrical goods store

1. A type of retail store specializing in mass volume sales of home electrical appliances. Most such outlets are gigantic and tend to occupy several enormous floors of department store buildings, or even an entire building.

2. Competition between shops is fierce, and sales assistants sometimes agree to negotiate. Bargain-crazed shoppers make the rounds of such stores to find one that will agree to discounts.

3. Management provides extensive training to its sales people, so industrious clerks can give you courteous instructions regarding minute aspects of design and use. Such special service is free of charge.

4. These stores are conveniently located near major train stations or terminal buildings. Big city centers like Akihabara, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, etc., serve as battlegrounds for constant competitions of electrical goods stores.
