The village's chamber of commerce began to field phone calls from people trying to reach the longtime business on Wednesday, said Dawn Fletcher Collins, executive director of the chamber.

Collins believes the Bristol Court, at 835 E. Rand Road, shut its doors Tuesday. The phone number and website for the longtime business have both been disconnected.

"I didn't know anything until I got a call Wednesday from someone trying to reach them," Collins said. "We've heard from some people who no longer have a venue for their event or wedding."

Bristol Court had been the traditional home of Mount Prospect's Celestial Celebration for many years until the gala switched locations this February to Victoria in the Park.

Kristina Regal at Lavelle Law Ltd. in Palatine said she is investigating the circumstances of the Bristol Court closing and how it will affect clients who had already made deposits for events at the popular banquet hall.

For now, it appears those people are out their deposits, Collins said. She has been directing people needing a banquet hall to other locations within Mount Prospect.

"I'm very, very sorry for them, and it's extremely inconvenient and sad depending on their event and financial investment in this," she said.

"It's about the people. I'm not concerned about the place at this time. I'm concerned about the people."
