Another city centre store has closed its doors for good.

The Body Shop on Stonegate is the latest one to go.

A sign in the window says: “Shutting up shop: Heads up that, as of 27th July, this store will be closing.

“It’s not you, it’s us.”

The shop in the Coppergate Centre will remain open. The sign directs shoppers there, “or you can search our full range online from the comfort of your sofa”.

Closing… the Stonegate brance

The closure comes just weeks after the branch reopened to customers after lockdown.

We reported earlier this month that at least 17 city centre businesses had closed their doors for good since lockdown.

That was the equivalent of one business closing every 37 hours.
