Japanese fashion retailer Uniqlo has posted a 2.7% total sales increase for the month of October, including online revenue.

The company's same-store sales were down 1.1% during the month but increased 4% across all stores. A total of 11 stores were opened during the month, with two closed.

A statement by parent company Fast Retailing said: "In October, temperatures were high until the middle of the month, but fell in the latter half, helping drive sales of winter items. As a result, same-store sales were almost unchanged from last year."
