Renovations are in progress for the Bath & Body Works location at Pinecrest Plaza in Southern Pines. Construction began earlier this week, said the parent company of Bath & Body Works, L Brands Communications.
The store originally opened in 2000 and will remain at 2,800 square feet, but the store will now feature a White Barn candle shop section.
According to L Brands Communications, “White Barn is a unique retail environment that features the world’s best candles, home fragrances and other accessories that make a house a home.”
Bath & Body Works is one of the largest retail beauty and fragrance stores in the country and has nearly 1,800 stores worldwide.
The store had signs inside announcing the upcoming closing, but some Moore County residents were shocked this week to find the doors closed.
The Southern Pines store will be temporarily closed for the face-lift and will reopen sometime in October.
