*2002 is the most recent data freely available on the Internet

-   Using above figures, in 2002 Richer Sounds had a market share of 2% of the brown goods
    market.

-   This appears small, but is almost a third the size of everyday brands Argos and Comet.
    Additionally, the brown goods market includes televisions, video recorders, DVD players, cable
    and satellite systems and audio equipment. As Richer Sounds specialises in audio equipment
    only, we cannot expect sales per customer to be as high as in their main competitors.
