EPSON “NEAR COMPAQ IN US RETAIL SALES”

By CBR Staff Writer

While Compaq Computer Corp trumpets the results of the quarterly survey of US retail computer outlets compiled by Storeboard Inc of Dallas, Taxas – they showed Compaq’s market share jumping by 50% to 26% in the quarter (CI No 814) – Seiko-Epson Corp’s US arm has almost as much to shout about. Despite all the controversy over Japanese imports, Epson comes in just behind Compaq in the survey and even Toshiba, hit by the illegal sale of milling machines to the Soviet Union by its Toshiba Machine affiliate, saw its sales drop a bit in the quarter, but according to Storeboard, the Toshiba T1100 and T3100 are continuing to to sell well – helped by a promotion that bundled the T3100 with Lotus Development’s Symphony. Toshiba Sales through stores are said to be over 12,000 for the first nine months of 1987.
