TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese retailers Seven & i Holdings Co (3382.T) and Fast Retailing (9983.T) plan a wide-ranging partnership this year, including a new clothing brand, a person familiar with the matter said on Friday.
The cooperation, which will also include allowing customers to pick up Uniqlo casual-wear products at 7-Eleven stories, will not include a capital tie-up, the person said.
Media representatives for the two companies could not immediately be reached for comment.
The Nikkei newspaper said on Friday the companies also intend to work together overseas.
