The Body Shop used to be a mainstay in malls and shopping centers across the U.S., but you won’t be able to find them anymore.

The company filed for bankruptcy and shut down all its locations in America as of March 1, shuttering dozens of locations across the country. While having fewer places to shop might keep more cash in your wallet, nobody likes seeing their favorite retailers close down. 

So, was your city affected by the closings? Here are a few of the stores that were shut down, along with information about where you can still get Body Shop products.
