Popular skin care brand Deciem suddenly shuttered all their store locations this week following an Instagram post from the owner.
Over the weekend, founder Brandon Truaxe posted a video to the social media site that accused people involved in the brand of criminal activity and announced he was closing all stores until further notice. These allegations are currently unproven, and the situation is still unfolding, but in the meantime, customers in both the Toronto and Vancouver areas found themselves locked out of stores and unable to stock up on their favourites from The Ordinary, Niod, The Chemistry Brand, and more.
It's currently unknown when, or if stores are expected to re-open, but if you're looking to stock up on Deciem products, we've compiled a short list of places where you can still find them!Deciem Online Store
