Uniqlo's Sept Domestic Same-Store Sales Climb 4.4%
TOKYO (Nikkei)--September same-store sales at Uniqlo stores in Japan rose 4.4% on the year, operator Fast Retailing Co. (9983) said Wednesday.
The figure grew for a fifth straight month as cooler temperatures from midmonth fueled customer purchases of fall and winter apparel featuring silk and cashmere.
Customer traffic surged 8.1% on the year. But sales per customer slid 3.4% owing to the popularity of lower-priced offerings such as women's leggings selling for 1,990 yen.
