The American mega-store Bath & Body Works that specializes in lotions, bath items, personal care items, and home fragrances (and is also every female in my life’s favourite store) is coming to Winnipeg.
Construction will begin at St. Vital Centre this February and expected to complete sometime in March.
Bath & Body opened its first Canadian stores in July 2008. After acquiring Canadian-based La Senza, they saw an opportunity to move into the Canadian market since their only competition would be The Body Shop.
Currently, the closest Bath & Body Works is south of the border at Grand Forks. There are 31 locations in Canada, but the St. Vital Centre location will be the first in Manitoba/Winnipeg.
