Abstract

In The Times 10th July 1992 the following by line appeared on p1 Body Shop wins unholy row with businesswoman announcing that Sir Peter Pain, sitting as a High Court judge, had granted an injunction restraining a Mrs Pauline Rawle, who was described as an evangelical Christian woman from using the Body Shop name in respect of six franchised shops in Bromley, Maidstone, Canterbury, Romford and Croydon 2 branches. It was alleged that the close relationship essential to the franchise contract between Mrs Rawle and the Body Shop had clearly broken down. Mrs Rawle allegedly told staff to have nothing to do with Body Shop representatives and alleged a conspiracy against her and comparing herself with God and the Body Shop organisation to Satan Mass dismissals of staff followed and the franchises were temporarily closed and reopened with inferior standards. This case is one of the few reported decisions on franchise operation in the UK.
