AKRON, Ohio- The bridal shop that temporarily closed after Ebola patient Amber Vinson visited is closing its doors for good.
Vinson, a 29-year-old nurse who treated a man with Ebola at a Dallas hospital, was diagnosed with the disease in October returning from Cleveland. She was in Northeast Ohio planning her wedding when she went to Coming Attractions Bridal in Akron.
On Wednesday, the owner of Coming Attractions Anna Younker posted on the shop’s Facebook page that the business is closing.
“I am sad to announce that Coming Attractions Bridal & Formal is being forced to wind down its operations after thirty years of service due to the devastating effect that recent events have had on our business. Despite our best efforts, we simply have been unable to recover,” Younker wrote on Facebook.
The shop will remain open until all existing order are complete.
Coming Attractions was closed for weeks as Younker brought in a professional cleaning company to sterilize the dresses. She told Fox 8 News in November that she lost tens of thousands of dollars during that time.
On Nov. 20, Vinson’s attorney sent a letter to Coming Attractions, asking for a refund of the deposits and payments made towards the bridesmaids dresses. Younker called the letter a shock and a slap in the face.
