Bath & Body Works closes at Battle Creek Mall after 26 years
The original location of Battle Creek Bath & Body Works at Lakeview Square Shopping Center has closed after nearly 26 years.
The question was asked in September 2021. Will Lakeview Square Mall in Battle Creek lose one of its oldest tenants? We popped the question after learning of a second Bath & Body Works location opening at Harper Village Mall in Battle Creek. We now have the answer.
The Bath & Body Works store at Lakeview Square Mall closed permanently on Friday, January 21, 2022. The mall opened in June 1996. This was around the same time as Lakeview Square Cinema 9 opened. he location of the Battle Creek Mall was born shortly after the company’s founding began.
In the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, malls were the place to be. For many businesses, securing a coveted spot in a mall meant a better chance of success. Malls were sometimes able to be selective about which businesses could open there.
It was a place to hang out with friends, find new clothes, get your hair done, and pick out gifts and home decor. The mall was the place to see and be seen. Lakeview Square Mall has attracted its fair share of celebrities over the years.
Ted Nugent, the 1984 Olympic gold medalist gymnasts, and Luke Duke have all been spotted at the Battle Creek Mall and that’s just a few.
