U.S. appliance store sales gains have been sluggish over the current recovery period despite rising demand for household appliances.

Home centers became aggressive sellers of major household appliances as the home improvement market began to recover from the recession.
These and other trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Appliance Retailers. This First Look also provides data on consumer purchases and retail sales of kitchen and laundry appliances, television and related video equipment, audio equipment, HVAC equipment, and other appliance lines.
