Owners ready to reopen clothing store in Mount Kisco after old store burned down
(11/29/03) MOUNT KISCO - The owners of a popular clothing store in Mount Kisco have now fully recovered from a devastating fire. More than three years ago, a fire burned down their shop known as "The Elephant's Trunk."
An electrical fire gutted the century-old building in August of 2000. It took $1.5 million to rebuild, but Robert and Rafael Brache, the two brothers who own the store, say the money spent was well worth it. Now, "The Elephant's Trunk" has a new place to call home. More than 500 dresses from all different designers fill up the brand new space on Main Street. The owners will hold a re-grand opening next weekend at the store.
Once a nostalgic and unique costume store, it has now been transformed into a place that sells casual to elegant dresses for special occasions. Dresses range in price from $300 to $3,500, and they come in all unique styles from more than 60 designer labels.
