There's commercial lease dustup underway at the building that formerly housed the Charleston Saks Fifth Avenue.
No, it's not Forever 21, it's Bella Vista Bridal & Wedding Boutique that signed a multi-year lease just before Saks announced they would leave and now Bella Vista's owner says they were deceived by a promise that Saks wasn't going anywhere anytime soon.
The Post and Courier has a brief report on the legal action underway; read it here.
Bella Vista is now at 60 Calhoun Street, the space that formerly housed Kennedy's Bakery that closed in late 2009. The rent back then was in the $3-4K range, so you can imagine what Bela Vista was paying before (yes, there's square footage and other differences, take that with a lot of salt.)
