A viral attraction
The deadly virus hasn't been in the news lately, but people in Akron, Ohio haven't forgotten that Coming Attractions Bridal & Formal was visited in October by Dallas nurse Amber Vinson, who was diagnosed with Ebola days later. The store reopened in November after a temporary closing and cleaning, but owner Anna Younker says she lost at least $100,000 by doing so. Business never recovered after the shop was stigmatized as "the Ebola store," and after 30 years of operation, Coming Attractions has been forced to close its doors.
Younker wrote on the shop's Facebook's page that all current orders will be filled, and thanked her loyal customers and hard-working staff for their support.
