Uniqlo booked a 13.7% increase in Japanese same-store sales last month

Strong sales of winter clothing helped casual clothing retailer Uniqlo to book a 13.7% increase in Japanese same-store sales during November. 

Uniqlo, which opened eight new stores and closed two during November, said own store sales rose 16.9% last month. Total sales, including online, jumped 17.7%.

The retailer attributed the same-store sale growth to its successful Fast Retailing anniversary sale and strong sales of winter clothing, including the effect of advertising HeatTech and Ultra Light Down products.

Last month, Uniqlo teamed up with Theory to design and manufacture a collection of down jackets and vests for men and women.
