         Attorney General Andrew Cuomo says the chain stopped accepting gift cards earlier this month as it sought bankruptcy protection and unsuccessfully tried to find a buyer.
        
    Customers complained.
        
    Cuomo said Wednesday the liquidators who now own the store's jewelry and furniture merchandise have agreed to honor gift cards and credit slips _ but only until March 8.
        
    Cuomo said there was an estimated $8.5 million in cards and credit in circulation. The chain has stores in Westbury, White Plains and Nanuet, N.Y., and elsewhere in the Northeast.
