The weather played less of a part than usual in sales at Fast Retailing’s Uniqlo chain during July with the company saying on Tuesday that its Japanese sales (including online) rose 4.7% year-on-year during the month.
Uniqlo India donated 2 lakh masks and 2,000 units of its 'ALRism innerwear' to hospitals and police departments in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR) to support frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19.
Japanese clothing chain Uniqlo is likely to report strong same-store sales for June, taking the edge off a profit plunge for owner Fast Retailing due to store closures and weak demand amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Zara, H&M and Gap may be slowly reopening their stores but the coronavirus epidemic has had a devastating financial impact on the fast fashion sector, which needs a radical overhaul if it is to recover, experts say.
Japanese casual clothing chain Uniqlo, owned by Fast Retailing, said it plans to sell face masks made of fabric used for its Airism underwear line in response to strong demand for protective gear for the coronavirus.
