A Facebook post is getting a lot of attention after a same-sex couple was denied service at a bridal store in Columbia County.
              Eyewitness News spoke to the woman who was turned away by "W-W Bridal Boutique" in Bloomsburg.
 According to the woman's Facebook status, an employee at the boutique told her quote "Unfortunately she would not be able to schedule an appointment for them because they currently do not service same sex couples -- it's just not something they do."
    The owners of "W-W Bridal Boutique" told us they turned away the women citing religious beliefs.
    They declined to comment on camera.
A Civil Rights lawyer said in Pennsylvania any private business owner has the right to turn away a customer.
