I live in NYC and my mother is throwing me a shower in a hall. We have a very large family (both sides) so she is inviting over 80 ppl which is a little less then my bridal shower. Yesterday, she got a call from the hall saying that they a closing because they sold the facility. They said they would still have my shower because the new owners will be taking over in Feb. My shower is supposed to be Jan. 26th. Today, the owner calls her saying that they will no longer be able to have my shower because the new owner wants to take over the hall on Jan. 1st. They said there is another hall that will be able to take care of the shower for us. My mom called today and the person she was supposed to talk to was out today and the person she did speak with had no clue what my mother was talking about.
I don't care where we have the shower but I feel bad for my mom. She has been planning like a mad woman for months. She is so excited about the baby and the shower I hope this all works out. She can find another hall if this doesn't work out but she doesn't need the stress. We both agreed it is probably better that we aren't having it at the original place cause who knows how the staff will be. I would be pissed and wouldn't do the best job I could do knowing that I didn't have a job the following week.
I just don't get how they can do this. Doesn't the new owner have to honor a contract especially when it less then a month before the party. What if this was a wedding? I just don't think it is right for them to cancel so close to the event.
