New stores for Body Shop.

The Body Shop has targeted New York City for expansion.

The highly successful and visible British cosmetics company, founded by environmentalist and social activist Anita Roddick, recently opened its seventh New York City store at the World Trade Center. The launch of this location will be followed by the opening of new stores in the Flat Iron District by the end of this year and Rockefeller Center in the first quarter of 1993.

Virginia Pittarelli, senior director of retail services at Koeppel Tener Riguardi, Inc. (KTR), and an exclusive northeast real estate representative for The Body Shop, said further expansion in New York City is planned.

The Body Shop opened its first store in New York in July 1988 on Broadway between Astor Place and 8th Street. This shop was soon followed by locations at Lexington and 61st, Madison and 52nd, Broadway and 76th, A&S Plaza and the South Street Seaport. The Body Shop has more than 700 stores worldwide, including over 80 stores in the U.S.
