Fast Retailing announces sales figures for March 2014 for Uniqlo. In March 2014 same-store sales increased by 0.6% year on year while sales at our own stores increased by 4.4%.
Total sales including online sales increased by 4.2%.
Same-store sales outstripped the previous year's strong performance to record a year-on-year gain in March, with warmer weather from mid-month kick starting sales of spring garments.
UNIQLO was the first company in Japan to establish an SPA (Specialty store retailer of Private label Apparel) model encompassing all stages of the business--from design and production to final sale.
By continuously refining its SPA model, UNIQLO successfully differentiates itself from other companies by developing unique products.
