Japanese supermarket operator Aeon has said that its group revenue rose 2.5% to ¥760.3bn (US$6.2bn) for the third quarter.

Aeon said its group operating profit grew ¥6.4bn from a year earlier, although the company did not provide an actual profit figure.

The company attributed the growth in revenue to strong sales that were largely due to seasonal factors, reported Dow Jones International News.
