Workman, which operates chain stores such as work clothes, has been selling well-priced clothing for the year ending March due to the influence of the new coronavirus, and both sales and final profits are in the past. It was the best.

Workman's financial results for the year to March are:

▽ Gross operating revenue, which is sales



by 14.6% from the same period of the previous year to 105.8 billion yen, and

▽ Final profit

increased by

27.5% to 17 billion yen.

With the increase in profits, both reached record highs.

As Workman's outdoor leisure became more popular due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, sales of casual clothing that made use of the know-how cultivated in work clothes increased significantly.

In addition, suits that newly introduced water repellency and breathability for sale also performed well against the backdrop of an increase in bicycle commuting and the spread of remote work.

In the fashion industry, major apparel and men's clothing chains that open in department stores are declining, while casual brands that sell at reasonable prices are growing.
