In a significant addition to the beauty retail sector, Bath & Body Works will open its first standalone store in London. The 2,357 square foot store, set to open in April, is located directly opposite Sephora, adding to the recent successful openings and expansions in the area, which include Sephora’s first UK store, Space NK, Rituals, and PureSeoul.

Kate Orwin, Leasing Director UK at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, commented on the expansion: “We’ve had a robust year so far in leasing at Westfield London, with increased demand for upsizing and new store space as brands look to expand in strategic locations. This momentum builds upon the success of 2023, during which we welcomed over 80 new store openings across both Westfield centres. We anticipate further growth in the beauty, medical, and wellness sectors throughout this year, as we continue our commitment to creating best in class destinations and exceptional customer experiences.”
