AKRON, Ohio – A northeast Ohio bridal shop that was linked to an Ebola survivor and later announced plans to close has put its building up for sale.
Dallas nurse Amber Vinson visited Coming Attractions Bridal & Formal in Akron days before she was diagnosed with Ebola last fall. The store temporarily closed and cleaned before reopening, but its manager said there was a lingering stigma and business suffered.
The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1BQQl4F ) reports the shop's Facebook page says a bank now has cut off its credit line, forcing it to sell the building. The store is still filling orders that were made through January.
Akron officials had considered ideas to help relocate or save the store, but its operators said they didn't plan to take the city up on that offer.
