SHOPPERS turned out in impressive numbers to examine a host of ethically-sourced beauty products at the newly-revamped Body Shop in Montague Street, Worthing.
The store, which closed for two weeks last month to focus on its refit, dedicated the relaunch event last Saturday to fundraise for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.
There were goody bags offered to the first 100 customers through the door, who took in its more open plan design, which has been geared around offering an enhanced emphasis on the chance to test out products within the store.
Manager Charlotte Kennard believed there had been a great response to its new look and hoped the grand opening would raise at least £300 towards its chosen charity cause.
The 24 year-old from Worthing said: “The launch day has been really good as we have had some very positive comments from our customers.
“This store is good news for Worthing and the revamp has been about taking the Body Shop back to the founding principles that Anita Roddick believed in.
“This included supporting fair trade, human rights and ensuring that we do not test cosmetic products on animals, which is something that has just been banned within the EU.”
