The Body Shop returns to Lincoln shopping centre

A come back: The Body Shop is moving back to Lincoln, now a shopping centre redevelopment is complete.

Popular cosmetic brand The Body Shop will be making a return to Lincoln’s Waterside Shopping Centre, it has been confirmed.

The new shop will open on November 8, next to New Look in the shopping centre, offering a range of skincare and body care products, make-up and fragrances.

The shop will have a special design inside to allow for easier testing and trialling of products, plus a Community Wall to advertise and celebrate local volunteering projects.

There will also be in-store campaign-led events that customers can easily participate in.

To celebrate the opening of the new look store, The Body Shop will give away free goody bags filled with pampering treats worth over £10 to the first 100 customers, plus 40% off everything on November 8.

Rebecca Boston, Store Manager at The Body Shop Lincoln, said: “At The Body Shop we believe that true beauty comes from the heart. It’s much more than looking good and feeling good, but it’s about doing good too.

“We hope that customers, loyal and new, will enjoy the enhanced browsing and shopping experience and new products, as well as find their inner activist to make a difference in our local community and the world we live in.”

Roy Greening, General Manager for the Waterside Shopping, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome The Body Shop back into the centre!

“Now that our redevelopment is complete, the return of The Body Shop to the Waterside shows that the opening of H&M and Next may have been the end of a big stage for the centre, but there’s still more to come.

“With over 20 amazing high-street retailers currently trading in the Waterside and more to come, the centre is continuously striving towards offering the best shopping experience in Lincoln – and the addition of The Body Shop is another milestone step on the path to that goal.”

As well as the new Body Shop, the shopping centre has also installed a 20 square metre LED screen on the centre’s High Street level.

It will display local and regional advertising, as well as for promoting things in the Waterside, from events to sales.
