JENKS, OK -- A troubled retailer who talked to The News On 6 on Monday night got a 24-hour eviction notice on Tuesday morning.

"When I first signed my lease you know I was told that there would be some nationally recognized companies coming in, you know maybe a Gap, Bath and Body Works or Bed Bath and Beyond and it would be open for business in spring/summer of 2007," said Dara Dupler, owner of Azure Couture.

Dara Dupler thinks her statement is the reason The RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks is trying to kick her out.  She had planned to close her store, Azure Couture, in a couple of weeks.

In the original story, Dupler placed part of the blame on broken promises from the developer of the RiverWalk Crossing.

She says she plans to fight the eviction.
