Buffalo bridal shop seized by the State: Brides left without gown

There is an article from the Tonawanda News from earlier this month that talks about how Mary Lee's bridal shop in Kenmore was seized by the State Department of Taxation and Finance. The bridal shop failed to pay $10,000 in taxes to the State.

Officials are trying to fill existing orders for anxious brides and prom goers. The Buffalo News reports that it appears that the shop owners continued to take orders without ordering the merchandise. In light of this, the shop owners may be faced with criminal fraud charges.

Many are rightfully upset.

According to the Buffalo News, online customer reviews gave the bridal shop an average of 1.5 out of 5 stars. I also found a few sites [site 1; site 2; site 3] which showed a pattern of poor behavior. Again, word-of-mouth is important!
