Restructuring of UK business will not impact India operations: The Body Shop India

The recent announcement regarding the restructuring of The Body Shop's UK business will not impact its operations in India, says The Body Shop India.

Operated by franchise partner Quest Retail, the brand's stores in India will continue to operate without any changes.

The administration process initiated pertains solely to The Body Shop UK business and does not affect the global head franchise partners, as clarified by The Body Shop India. Despite the recent developments in the UK, The Body Shop's presence
in India remains unaffected.

Last week, The Body Shop International appointed FRP, a business advisory firm, as administrators for its UK operations, resulting in job cuts and store closures in the UK market. However, the administrators emphasised on the importance of maintaining relationships with key franchise and wholesale partners in Asia, West Asia, and Europe for future success.

Shriti Malhotra, Group CEO - Quest Retail, The Body Shop India, says, all Body Shop stores in India are open as usual, offering customers the opportunity to shop both in-store and online for their favorite products.

Quest Retail, which operates approximately 200 Body Shop stores across India and serves customers in around 1,500 cities through online channels, remains committed to expanding the brand's presence.

Established in 2006, The Body Shop India operates under the umbrella of Quest Retail, focusing on omni-channel expansion and exploring opportunities in retail, quick commerce, and high convenience formats to enhance customer accessibility and brand affinity in the Indian market.
