Casey mentioned that he was not given any reason as to why the international cosmetics and beauty supply chain decided to close the Castro location, but mentioned there have been several businesses closing up and down Castro Street.

We'll keep you updated on what moves in after The Body Shop moves out. via Biscuit tipster Mark V
