Furniture and furnishings stores continued to experience difficult business conditions in 2011. This was due to a serious rise in the consumer default rate for credit purchases and hence, slow growth due to reduced income as a result of bad debts. Retailers like JD Group operate with over 60% of their sales being on credit and serious debtor management is essential for continued survival in the furniture industry where business tends to be slower.
