COLUMBUS, OH / ACCESSWIRE / October 19, 2022 / Bath & Body Works joins the Time To Vote pledge and will delay the opening of its stores by two hours this Election Day, Nov. 8, to give every associate the opportunity to vote. The retailer has more than 1,600 retail locations with more than 80,000 associates nationwide.
Time To Vote is a nonpartisan movement, led by a diverse business coalition, to reduce barriers and increase voter participation. One of the most common reasons people give for not voting is that they're too busy with the demands of work and life.
Bath & Body Works is supporting the Time To Vote effort by encouraging all associates to make a plan for voting, to learn about the issues and by providing associates with time to vote. All U.S. Bath & Body Works stores will open at noon on Nov. 8 to provide time for store associates to vote before stores open. Schedules for Ohio-based home office and distribution center associates also support associates' civic responsibility to vote.
"At Bath & Body Works, we're focused on making a positive diﬀerence in our communities," says Ron Ford, Chief Stores Officer. "Each election gives us a chance to get involved and create a better world. Voting is a foundational practice in our democracy, and it is vital that our associates have the flexibility to participate in the democratic process."
