TOKYO, June 3 (Reuters) - Fast Retailing Co said on Tuesday that same-store sales at its Uniqlo clothing outlets in Japan rose 4.1 percent in May from a year earlier.
Sales at stores open at least a year - a key measure for retailers - were helped by favourable weather and summer goods sold well.
The increase followed a 3.3 percent rise in April, with no signs of a retreat in sales after an April 1 sales tax hike in Japan that affected some retailers’ business. Uniqlo had said it did not expect much impact from the tax increase. (Reporting by Chris Gallagher; Editing by Edmund Klamann)
