Kingsbridge shop halts weddings
(07/26/03) KINGSBRIDGE - It was the worst nightmare for customers at one Bronx bridal shop. The store shut down without notice and the owner was nowhere to be found.
Bronx brides who ordered gowns at Anjali's Bridal Shop got a nasty surprise when they went to pick up their dresses this weekend for parties. There was a posted sign that said the store was closed for renovations until July 23, but the store was totally empty.
The shop's owner said she did not skip town, and is referring customers to her parents' store for the dresses or refunds. She said she had every intention of reopening, but had a disagreement with the landlord. She also claims that she notified her customers she would be closing.
The shop closing has caused some brides to have to change wedding dates or souvenirs, but getting their dresses or money back is some of the better news they've had recently.
