Zlata is the best
October 26, 2020 11:11 pm

Zlata is the most warm accommodating friendly saleswoman I have met.
I wish her only Hatzlacha and hope she is able to recoup some of her losses

Sick!

Oh right, you were unfortunately defunded

Appalled!

Or insurance

thief must know...

So sorry, Zlata. I guess the only way to deal with this is to think of this awful loss as a Kapparah for something even more aggravating. This had to have been pre-planned, not done on a whim. The thief must know the neighborhood well if she knew just how to come around the back to break into the store. She must live, or have lived, in a local apt. building, or have worked for someone locally. Perhaps if pictures of her were posted publicly, offering a couple of thousand dollars reward for information leading to her whereabouts and arrest,… Read more »

But I think you mean re-fund 🙂

How can the wigs be identified? Are there tags
October 27, 2020 11:10 am

Everyone should know this and try to help locate if she tries to sell. What a chutzpah. Could she have seen the youtube video and gotten ideas.

Store Gates
October 27, 2020 12:27 pm

Store Gates are very important for ALL Crown Heights Businesses, Even for the back entrance like here, As well shockingly many ch stores have windows towards the back Alleyway or backyard of their store and there are No bars, Bars are very important to have installed as well.

Eastern Pkwy & Utica
October 27, 2020 12:36 pm

Possibly she will try to sell them by the unofficial outdoor flea market by Eastern Parkway & Utica near the Utica Subway Train Station entrance, In the past years I believe once or twice important valuables that were stolen from Yidden in CH were being sold there & recovered, Maybe Zlata Wigs can give a description of their wigs and ask Shmira/Shomrim if they can canvass the EP/Utica thing to see if they spot it.

CH Needs More Police
October 27, 2020 12:38 pm

Crime is rising in every category daily, The streets are not safe, Each day has more and more shootings in Brooklyn & specifically in CH, and very dangerously many shootings in the Center of CH over the last few months, something that CH has not experienced since the 1970’s There are 2 types of Neighborhoods throughout NYC. There was even a shooting last night on Carroll between Troy & Schenectady, One type (which is the majority) has the majority of their neighborhood’s residents want to Defund & even Abolish the NYPD, They have No respect for law & order, They… Read more »

Check Facebook Marketplace
October 27, 2020 1:18 pm

Search for the wigs that might be listed on Facebook marketplace or any other platform. Good luck. Hope she’s caught.

Oh no
October 27, 2020 2:05 pm

I bought a sheitel from Zlata in the summer and I have never had such a nice experience before. She is so friendly and nice. Understands you. Is genuine. Doesn’t pressure you.

I hope they catch the thief and her losses are recovered. So sorry she is having to deal with this.

Assuming
October 27, 2020 4:51 pm

The thief should be caught and punished, but is that a justification for assuming the thief’s gender? 😉

Terrible!

A bit far fetched but can it be connected to:

This past Motzaei Shabbos in his weekly shiur, the Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rav Yitzchok Yosef shlita, voiced his opinion that sheitels are forbidden, even those with a hechsher. [Rav Yosef is one of the leading halachic Poskim in Israel.] According to a report in Arutz Sheva:
