Uniqlo enjoys strong start to year as sales rise
Uniqlo saw its total sales rise 12% in January
Casual clothing brand Uniqlo enjoyed a strong start to the new year after reporting an increase in sales at its Japanese stores in January.
The Fast Retailing-owned chain said same store sales increased by 8.9% year-on-year, while sales at its own stores were up 10.8%. Total sales, including online sales, rose 12%.
Uniqlo attributed the growth to strong sales at the start of the new year and consistently favourable sales of core ranges. The group closed seven stores in January.
Last month, Uniqlo revealed it will enter the Canadian market next year, with the opening of two stores in Toronto, marking the brand's 18th market overall.
