UPDATE: A rep from LUSH replied to my post on their Facebook page, saying they are “already close to securing a new space” for a freestanding location. Fingers crossed!
I’m late seeing this, but the last day of business for the LUSH Cosmetics in Macy’s Oak Court is May 28. They posted the news on their Facebook page May 3. They are looking for a freestanding location, which they hope to have open by fall. I think Laurelwood, Saddle Creek or South Main would be ideal for LUSH.
The Oak Court location was the only LUSH outlet in Tennessee (you hear that Nashville?). I’m not sure why it’s closing. I know I can’t seem to walk through Macy’s without spending at least $20 at that counter. When I was Christmas shopping, I even bought myself a stocking stuffer, despite the fact that I knew from the aroma that there was already a box of LUSH goodies under the tree.
That is, if another location opens. I know it had a lot of loyal customers (besides me), so I’m staying optimistic. But I’ve seen enough of my favorite stores leave Memphis and never return. So I’ll be Tweeting and emailing and Facebooking LUSH to make sure they know how much Memphis values their presence. If you enjoy their products I suggest you do the same.
