For the first time in forever, Lauren’s department store chain is in major financial trouble on The Young and the Restless.
Sales have been plummeting at Fenmores for months. Although Lauren (Tracey Bregman) originally thought things would turn around during the holiday season, they never did. Now she’s in a quandary, looking for investors to keep the family business afloat while not relinquishing control of it.
It looks like it’s going to be a long, hard road for Lauren. Who do you think will step in and help her turn her business around? Soap Hub polled fans, and here’s what you had to say.
