THE WHAT? Lush has decided to shut its Hong Kong flagship permanently after sales dwindled in the face of months of protests and COVID-19-related restrictions, according to a report published by Inside Retail Asia.
THE DETAILS The ethical cosmetics brand has called time on the five-storey space several months before its lease comes up for renewal.
Located on Lyndhurst Tce, the 6,909 sq ft store housed a retail area, café and spa and was let at US$196,000 per year, per Inside Retail Asia.
THE WHY? Part of a wider trend of bricks and mortar closures, Lush’s decision to shutter its flagship for good follows similar measures taken by fellow Hong Kong beauty retailers, such as SaSa, as reduced footfall hit sales.
