Fast Retailing saw sales grow at its Japanese Uniqlo stores in December, as cold weather continued to boost sales of its winter clothing ranges.

Same store sales edged up by 1.1% during the month, compared to the same period last year. Sales at the casual clothing retailer's own stores (which include new ones that are less than a year old) grew 3.7% year-on-year. 

Total sales, including online sales, increased by 4.1%.

Uniqlo opened two new stores in December, taking its total to 839 direct-run stores.
