The Body Shop Is Closing 33 Of Its Stores And Online Shop

After filing for bankruptcy protection, the vegan beauty brand, The Body Shop, is closing 33 of its 105 stores and its online shop in Canada. 

It was announced on Friday, March 1st, 2024, that The Body Shop would be downsizing, having filed for a Notice of Intention (NOI) in order to “provide breathing room” to re-strategize and restructure for the future. 

The company shared in a news release, “The Body Shop Canada is commencing this NOI process to obtain a stay of proceedings to provide additional breathing room while it evaluates its strategic alternatives and implements certain restructuring initiatives.” 

The website is already inactive, stating on its homepage, “Thanks for visiting” – “We’re currently undergoing planned maintenance, but don’t worry we’re due to be back online soon.” 

Currently, all of The Body Shop’s Canadian locations are still open, with 33 designated stores planned to close soon, which includes 5 stores in Toronto, totaling 15 stores in Ontario.
