The Body Shop in Grantham closing because it is ‘no longer viable’

Have your say

The Body Shop in Grantham will close down in March because it is no longer financially viable, says the company.

In a statement the company said: “The Body Shop, Grantham, is due for closure on March 2, 2013, due to the store no longer being financially viable and to make way for a new The Body Shop Boutique in Nottingham planned for opening on May 25, 2013. The Body Shop will endeavour to relocate employees where possible.”

The store moved into the George Centre in 1997 from the High Street. The Grantham business employs one full-time employee and three part-time.

Last week it was announced another Grantham store, Thornton’s, in the Isaac Newton Centre, is to close in April. The chocolate store employs four people.
