Most of these closures will be taken place in malls but Bath & Body Works announced that they will be closing 50 stores across the country amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Select locations are currently open according to the Bath & Body Works website. They are currently offering variety of deals online. Despite some of their stores closing, Bath & Body Works had a pretty strong quarter. Their online sales grew 85% over the last year and they expect their sanitizer products to grow into a $300 million business.
The reason for some of their closures in malls is due to social distancing issues where there is strong foot traffic and harder to keep six feet apart.
