COVINGTON, Ky. -- Many Tri-State foodies have been mourning the loss of Chez Nora, the popular upscale eatery in Covington’s Mainstrasse Village that closed Jan. 5.
But some of them are also missing their money.
Several WCPO viewers said they were stuck with worthless gift certificates after the restaurant closed .
Dianne Cooper Avant said her friend was out $75 because she bought a Chez Nora gift card three days before the eatery closed after 20 years of service.
“They can’t and won’t honor (the gift card),” Avant said. “They never said a thing to her about closing.”
A similar thing happened in 2011 when the restaurant Maisonette closed on East Sixth Street in Cincinnati.
But Chez Nora gift card holders may be in luck.
Owners of the Mainstrasse bistro and bar Otto's say they will honor 50 percent of any Chez Nora certificate.
