Search is on for WC boutique store owner who left customers high and dry

The search continues for the owner of a boutique shop at Canal Walk Shopping Centre who left customers and staff high and dry.

Bernadette Lifshitz, initially told employees and patrons that the store was moving to a different location, but that never materialised.

Former manager of Occasions, Ruby Fortuin says they received a notice that they should pack up all the clothes and that their money would be paid to them.

Her husband was supposed to come from Israel and talk to us to let us know where we are going to, which now we know was all a lie.

Personally they owe me for 12 years and half of my salary for February and all my commission...

Owner of Iconic Designs, Martie Walker says Occasions owes her R65 000 for the dresses she supplied them with, while Liza Cliff has been paying off a R14 000 matric ball dress for her daughter since January and was shocked to discover that the shop has been closed down.

Cliff says she's planning to lay a charge with the South African Police Services.

Bernadette Lifshitz is believed to have relocated to Tel Aviv.
