THE BRONX - A tuxedo store in Morris Park is getting ready for its busiest time of the year.

The Men's Wear Tuxedo Shop is preparing for prom season, which also falls during the time of when quinceaneras take place.

The shop's owner, Ricardo Gallardo, says quinceaneras, the Hispanic cultural celebration of when a girl turns 15 years old, are a huge part of his business.

"Last year we broke the record," Gallardo says. "We sold more than 400 dresses."

He says that May through September are extremely busy months for his shop.
