TOKYO — Uniqlo’s same-store sales climbed 6.4 percent in June as Japanese consumers snapped up summer goods like T-shirts and tank tops with built-in bras.
This is the eighth consecutive month of comps growth for the chain, owned by Fast Retailing Co. Ltd. But the number does reflect a slowdown from the 18.3 percent jump posted in May and 19.2 percent rise registered in April. A Fast Retailing spokesman noted that a series of national holidays in April and May helped lift business during those months.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
