The Body Shop in Preston city centre has joined the ‘refill revolution’.


The store, based in St George’s Shopping Centre, is one of the the global chain’s first branches to have a refill station installed.

After trialling the scheme at two concept stores in 2019, The Body Shop is now rolling out refill stations across 400 stores worldwide throughout 2021, and a further 400 in 2022.

Hannah Harrison, assistant manager at The Body Shop in Preston, said: “Our store has recently been picked as one of the first to join our refill revolution.

“This means we have a lovely new refill station where customers can pick up an aluminium bottle to reuse and purchase their favourite choice of refill.

“It’s good for the environment and is such a unique fun way to care for the planet.”

Hannah says she and the team are happy to be back at work after having to close the store for periods during the Covid-19 pandemic.

She said: “We have sadly spent the best part of six months out of our lovely store.

“We want customers to know what we have on offer, and to reassure them about how safe it is to come and visit us.”
