Here Are The 33 Stores The Body Shop Is Closing In Canada

Beloved beauty brand The Body Shop is shutting down just more than 30 stores across Canada and is ending online sales as it seeks creditor protection. The Canadian subsidiary of the international brand announced on Friday that it will start liquidating nearly a third of its 105 stores immediately.

The company said in a press release it hopes Ontario court proceedings will give it “breathing room” while it evaluates its strategic alternatives and engages in restructuring, though the company hopes to keep most of its stores.

As part of that restructuring, the company will no longer accept gift cards, sell new gift cards or provide refunds, and will consider all new and previous purchases final, said Body Shop North America president Jordan Searle in a memo sent to Canadian staff on Friday. The company did not say how many employees would be out of jobs due to store closures.

In total The Body Shop will be closing 33 different stores across Canada, with about half of them in Ontario. Here are all of The Body Shop stores that are closing nationwide:
