Even though store closings aren’t exactly favorited by fans of the brand, this isn’t exactly the first time Bath & Body Works has shuttered retail locations. In the past decade the brand has closed 675 and sold 130 stores.
While hundreds of closings may seem like bad news, the soapy retailer has also opened 822 new stores. So is your nearest Bath & Body Works on the list? As of now, L Brands hasn’t announced specific stores slated to close in 2019.
