The American chain-store Bath and Body Works, are finally coming to Canada! I guess I won't have to run for the border anymore.
Six stores are expected to open in the Fall'08;
Erin Mills Town Centre (Mississauga)
Fairview Mall (Toronto)
Stone Road Mall (Guelph)
West Edmonton Mall (Edmonton)
White Oaks Mall (London)
and Yorkdale Shopping Centre (Toronto)
The first Bath and Body Works store opened in the fall of 1990 in Albany, Ohio. There are now more than 1,600 stores throughout the U.S. They pride themselves on being the "ultimate personal care destination."
In other words, a 21st century apothecary integrating health, beauty and well-being. Combining the introduction of spa products that are easily used at home with the incorporation of simple rituals into daily life, Bath & Body Works is committed to helping consumers improve their emotional and physical being. We have accomplished this by combining traditional spa treatments with botanical and natural ingredients, then developing an extensive collection of advanced, easy-to-use personal care products with proven effectiveness.

A few of my favourite items that they carry are:
the Patricia Wexler M.D. Dermatology skincare line,
and their Signature Collection has great smelling products that any nose will love!
