Lush Canterbury to reveal new look shop

and invite customers to make their own bath bomb

Lush Canterbury, new store look to be revealed on 2nd December 2021

On Thursday, 2nd December at 12 pm, fresh handmade cosmetics brand Lush will reveal the new look of its Canterbury shop. The shop will be the second of several shops across the UK&I and Europe to reopen with a new customer journey concept.


I am incredibly passionate about retail and looking forward to the Lush Canterbury store reinvigorating the high street and delivering the highest customer service. I am very proud of my team who are long standing Lush employees and are all very excited for the store reopening!

Christy Harper, Shop Manager, Lush Canterbury. She has over 10 years of retail experience at Lush and has a professional background in the beauty and cosmetics industry. 

Continuing to invest in the high street with a new shopping experience

At a time when physical retail is under huge economic pressure, Lush is committed to continuing investment in the high streets and providing innovation and new customer experiences. 

With the new store concept and the ease of shopping in mind, the customer experience will be much clearer. The new customer journey concept showcases product category areas of ‘Fresh’ (fresh haircare and skincare), ‘Bathing’ (shower, soap and bath), and ‘Gifting’ – each with their own identity. 

The shop allows customers to easily pick up a varied selection of fresh handmade cosmetics including an array of gifts in the lead up to the festive season. The ‘Gifting’ area will feature traditional ethical gifts, bespoke gifting, fragrance gifts and alternative Christmas packaging options including Lush Knot Wraps

This year, the Canterbury team also offers a corporate gifting service to enable businesses to treat clients and employees to a much needed pamper this Christmas. 

To start the Lush corporate gifting journey, businesses can simply email [email protected] to speak to their dedicated corporate gifting concierge.

Reducing, Reusing, Recycling

As part of Lush’s mission to ‘Leave the world Lusher than we found it’, the main focus of the design is repurposing furniture. Alongside some new furniture produced from ethically sourced and durable materials, existing furniture from the previous store will be repurposed and refinished to give the materials a new lease of life. This is reducing the environmental impact and any waste of the shop refit process. 


When fitting their shops, Lush utilise the same values they do when sourcing ingredients for their products:

“As part of Lush‘s mission to ‘Leave the world Lusher than we found it’ we’re putting the environment and sustainability first within the design of the refit to limit our environmental impact whilst increasing customer engagement, enjoyment, brand awareness and ease of shopping experience. Canterbury is our second store to open with our new customer journey oriented zoned concept. Christy and her team have looked after their shop so conscientiously over the years, and it’s a pleasure to be giving them a new shiny store to be proud of all over again.”

Bath Bomb Workshops

Since Lush Co-founder, Mo Constantine invented the bath bomb over 30 years ago, Lush has always been about advocating wellbeing, “We believe in long candlelit baths, sharing showers, massage, and filling the world with perfume” is part of Lush’s mission statement and at the core of Lush’s very purpose as a business.


To celebrate their reopening and the launch of the brand new Adventures in Bathing collection, Lush Canterbury are inviting customers to come into the store and make their own bath bomb. This will be completely free of charge. 

Lush Canterbury Bath Bomb Sessions:

2nd December, 1-2 pm

Bring It Back

Lush Canterbury is not only looking forward to welcoming their customers back, but also welcoming their plastic packaging back! As part of Lush’s mission to ‘Leave the world Lusher than we found it’, Lush shops are inviting customers to bring back any full-sized Lush plastic packaging to their local Lush shop to be recycled as part of their fresh new packaging returns scheme, Bring It Back.


For each plastic Lush item returned, customers will receive a 50p deposit to spend on their Lush basket that day.
