Japan’s Isetan Mitsukoshi delays summer sale

Japan’s leading department store Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. will delay its summer discount sale by two weeks in an unusual break with its traditional strategy of relying on low prices to attract customers.

The discount sale is expected to kick off on 13 July at Isetan and Mitsukoshi stores in the Tokyo metropolitan area, sources said.
