American retailer Bath & Body Works, a bath shop chain that specializes in body care, sanitizers, hand soaps and home fragrance, will be opening a new location at The Crossings shopping district in Spring Hill this September.
While no official announcement has been made, some residents noticed on Monday a mysterious blue covering over what was formerly the Rue21 clothing shop, which closed last December. Upon closer inspection, the blue covering had signs scattered across it that detailed the nature of the mysterious construction: that Bath & Body Works, along with its sister company White Barn, which specializes in candles, would be opening later this year.
Offering a litany of body care products tailored to both men and women, some of Bath & Body Works’ signature products include Bigelow shave cream, body soaps and lotions, Coco Shea butter-based products, and aromatherapy care products. The White Barn portion of the store will offer hundreds of specialty candles, with everything from “Champagne Toast” to “Cactus Blossom,” along with soaps and room sprays matching these fragrances.
