Staff and brides left scrambling after the event center closed

And their big plans. Imagine planning a wedding, securing your venue for later this year, and then suddenly the venue is canceled and closed. This is the nightmare that many brides live after. The LENAPE Heights Event Center has closed, leaving brides scrambling and many employees out of a job. LENAPE Heights staff were left confused and rushed into action after the events center suddenly closed without any warning. They told me it had been an ongoing process since the beginning of the month, when I was told about the sale, but that business would resume as usual. But this was not true. Well, we were told we would go back to work when we were all ready to go back to work, and then we all received termination letters in the mail. We don't have jobs and no one is told any direct answers, or sometimes even at all. Now, employees are left with more questions. Of the answers. And I want to know if the old owners knew this was coming. Well, I want to know if the new owners knew this was what they planned and didn't tell anyone. I want to know who's at fault here. Many events scheduled for this year have been cancelled, including dozens of weddings, one of which was scheduled to take place as soon as next month. One bride is booking her wedding in May, but when she learned just last week that the venue would be closing for two to three weeks, we were trying to ring, ring, ring. nothing. In fact, the phone lines died after the first week I called and nothing would happen. Well, we drove up on Valentine's night and found a note on the door saying it was closed after a day, and an email was sent out explaining the closure and telling brides they would get their deposits back. They told me this doesn't make up for what happened and, more importantly, how it happened. This has been going on for a while and we had no warning at all. It is still unknown what space will be used after the venue and hotel are sold to a new owner

That's the nightmare many brides are living now that the Lenape Heights Event Center and golf course are closing, leaving brides scrambling and even many employees out of work. Staff say it has been an ongoing process since the beginning of the month, as they were told about the sale but that business will resume as usual. “We were told we were going back to work, we were all ready to go back to work, and then we all got termination letters in the mail,” Brittney Krohn said. “We don't have jobs, and no one is given any direct answers or sometimes at all,” Jordan Simpson said. Now, employees are left with more questions than answers. “I want to know if the old owners knew this was coming. I want to know if the new owners knew this was what they planned and didn't tell anyone. I want to know who's at fault here,” Krohn said. Many events scheduled for this year have been cancelled, including more than a dozen weddings. One appointment is even scheduled for next month. One bride booked her wedding for May and only last week found out the venue was closing. “The first week. You'd call, and there'd be nothing. So we drove up on Valentine's Day night, and there was a note on the door saying it was locked,” Megan Keibler said. A day later, an email was sent explaining the closure and telling brides that they would receive a refund of their deposits. They say this doesn't make up for what happened, and more importantly how it happened. “So this has been going on for a while. We had no warning at all,” Kepler said. It is still unknown what the space will be used for, now that the venue and hotel have been sold to new owners.
