TOKYO (Reuters) – Some clothing releases at Uniqlo stores will be delayed due to COVID-19 lockdowns at partner factories in Vietnam, Uniqlo’s Japanese parent firm Fast Retailing said on Thursday.

According to a spokesperson, the delays will impact four Uniqlo U brands that were expected to hit Japanese shops in September or October.

According to a Hanoi-based executive of a state-run garment company, although most garment factories are full, they face a shortage in workers.
