SECTION 607-A
Storage of furs
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 29-I
§ 607-a. Storage of furs. In addition to any other provision of this
article, a fur storage operator shall be subject to the following:

1. If there is any statement of limitation in damages in an agreement
for the storage of furs, such agreement shall contain on its face
immediately above the consumer bailor's signature the following notice
"DO NOT SIGN THIS AGREEMENT UNLESS THE DECLARED VALUE OF EACH ARTICLE TO
BE STORED OR SERVICED IS STATED."

2. Where the consumer bailor does not personally deliver furs for
storage and the fur storage operator, in the normal course of his
business, makes an appraisal of such furs before accepting them for
storage, the fur storage operator, for purposes of compliance with the
disclosure provisions of this article, shall be deemed to have complied
if he supplies a consumer bailor with a written storage agreement within
thirty days of receipt of such furs. Provided, however, that nothing
contained in this subdivision shall diminish any existing duty of care
which the fur storage operator owes to the consumer bailor.

3. For the purposes of this section, a fur storage operator means a
warehouseman whose storage business is limited to furs and other items
of valuable clothing and furs means articles of wearing apparel intended
to be worn by individuals and consisting in whole or in part of animal
fur.
