El Monte Business Association Recognizes Valley Mall Merchant’s Generosity
Margarita Barajas, owner of the Bride’s Boutique, came to the rescue for many young ladies who were deceived by another dress store. These young ladies made deposits and full prepayments on dresses and accessories for special events (weddings, quinceaneras, 1st communions, etc.) when the owner of the other store abruptly closed and kept their money. Hearing of this situation, Ms. Barajas generously donated between $15,000 – $20,000 in dresses and accessories to these young ladies allowing them to attend their special events in style. “We wanted to reach out to these young ladies and make their dream come true by having a nice dress to wear”, Ms. Barajas stated. The Downtown El Monte Business Association applauds Ms. Barajas and her sincere generosity.
