Harvey Norman has again reported a downturn in its sales as like for like written sales for the 28 days ended 9 November 2008 decreased by 2.8 per cent and margins remain under pressure.

The result is disappointing as the last weekly report to 2 November  only showed a 0.6 per cent decline, which was seen as hopeful for [better] things to come.

Harvey Norman has been releasing monthly like-for-like written sales for each of the past five weeks.
