TOKYO―Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. said Tuesday that Uniqlo’s same-store sale rose 1.8 percent in February.

The Japanese retailer said the successful launch of spring items buoyed sales growth. Uniqlo’s same-store sales slid 7.2 percent in January on depleted stocks of popular fall and winter items.

The monthly sales data excludes Uniqlo’s international operations.

Uniqlo currently operates a network of 773 stores across Japan, plus an increasing number of international outlets in locations such as New York, London, Paris and Singapore.
