Body Time, longtime Berkeley skin care company, closes after 5 decades

Body Time, a Berkeley-based and family-run skin care company, is closing after almost five decades of business because of rising rent costs.

The company, which was established in Berkeley in 1970 under the name of The Body Shop, is currently selling off its inventory and will soon close its locations in Berkeley and Walnut Creek.

Amid constant rent increases, Body Time found it difficult to stay in business, as stated in an April 15 Facebook post. In the post, the company also indicated that it would close April 22 — but the Walnut Creek location was still open Tuesday, according to the Mercury News.

“Our rents have almost doubled and we weren’t able to negotiate our lease,” the company said on its Facebook page. “This was a big surprise for us as well as our many loyal customers.”

A different post Wednesday said the company received thousands of orders in the past two weeks. According to Body Time’s website, however, the company is not accepting any new orders but is focused on shipping already-received orders.
