Body Shop to move to County Mall, Crawley


County Mall, in Crawley, will become the new home of The Body Shop.

The cosmetics retailer will relocate from Queens Square to the ground floor of the Mall later this month, taking over the unit recently vacated by Holland & Barrett.

Holland & Barrett moved to a newly re-fitted 2,260 sq ft unit near Primark.

County Mall management also welcomed the news plus-size fashion retailer Yours has extended its lease at the centre.

The Mall is nearing the completion of its £5million facelift and reported a strong Christmas trading performance, with annual footfall for the centre up 11.4 per cent in 2014.

Mark Haynes, County Mall centre manager, said: “It’s great to see some of the UK’s best brands, such as The Body Shop, joining the line up at County Mall and existing retailer, Holland & Barrett, investing in their store.

“With the centre refresh due for completion this May, County Mall will continue to be a desirable destination for retailers looking to expand their presence across the UK and an exciting proposition for shoppers.”
