The beauty company, which was founded in 1976 by the late Dame Anita Roddick, has been a long-term tenant in the Victoria Shopping Centre.
The Body Shop has stores in more than 200 locations in the UK, including Skipton, Leeds and York as well as Harrogate.
But it was recently bought by private equity firm Aurelius and trading is reported to have been weak.
Restructuring firm FRP Advisory is expected to be appointed administrators in the next few days, according to media reports.
The Harrogate store was still trading today when the The Stray Ferret visited.
We were advised to contact a media person for further details but have not had a response to our requests for more information.
