NORWALK - Some local retailers say they're concerned about how the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan will affect their inventory.

Aitoro in Norwalk, which sells electronic goods, says it imports about 25 percent of its stock from Japan.

Specialists at Aitoro say the earthquake will not affect the supplies of old or current models of TVs that have already been shipped, but new models are currently still on the conveyor belt in Japan.

Aitoro's says despite a possible dip in future supplies, it has no intentions of increasing the price of products anytime soon.
