Gome Electrical Appliances, China's second-largest home appliances and electronics retailer, said on Sunday that monthly online sales hit a record high.

Sales from its online shopping site, Gome Online, reached 1.04 billion yuan ($169 million) from April 8 to May 8 this year, the company said. Bestsellers included TV sets, air conditioners and washing machines.

In 2012, Gome's online sales reached 4.41 billion yuan, year-on-year growth of 119 percent.

The Hong Kong-listed company combined two of its shopping sites, Gome.com.cn and Coo8.com at the end of last year, and called the new platform Gome Online.
