TOKYO — Uniqlo’s same-store sales in February rose 4.2 percent, advancing for the fourth consecutive month.
Fast Retailing Co. Ltd., which owns the casualwear chain, said Tuesday that new Uniqlo items like colored denim drove business. The company, one of the few retailers thriving in recessionary Japan, said 4.1 percent more people visited its stores in the country last month, although average spending per customer was flat year-on-year.
