Body Shop was a sportswear and fashion boutique which opened in Brookwood Village shopping mall in 1974. The interior was decorated with automotive accessories such as tires, fenders, 300 hub caps, dozens of exhaust pipes, several car doors and a stripped down chassis, as well as hoists and tackles and oil drums repurposed for display.

The initial inventory included "perfect fitting trousers and body-tracing skirts" as well as "nostalgic looks of the '30s and 40's" such as 25-inch skirts, Georgette fabrics, and fur-trimmed sweaters.

The boutique is not related to "The Body Shop" chain of cosmetics shops founded by Dame Anita Roddick in Brighton, England in 1977.

Body Shop also had locations at Century Plaza in the 1980s and the Riverchase Galleria in the 1990s.
