Alfred Angelo Closed Its Stores and Brides Are Rightly Bugging Out

  • Who can brides call for help after Alfred Angelo shut down? This Miami lawyer.

"Wow, I'm in a wedding in October and the bride and ALL the bridesmaids have already paid for their Alfred Angelo Bridal dresses", Sara Cretser wrote on the Facebook page, "and now we are left with no dresses and no refund".

"The employees of a bridal company in town arrived at work this morning (Thursday) to discover that they no longer had jobs and the company was folding", Tukwila police said in a statement on Facebook.

It is Redmond's email address, not one belonging to the bridal retailer, that is on notices that were taped to the front doors of stores that were shut down this week.

"I saw something online in a wedding group", she said.

That's when the owner of a different bridal store stepped up to take in all of the already spoken-for dresses to ease some unneeded stress from anxious brides-to-be.

Her dress cost about $1,700, and she had put down a $1,045 deposit. Without much hope of finding her original dress, McGraw's bridesmaid Brooke Gehle started a funding campaign for a new dress, which is now a trending campaign on the site.

"Maybe if it gets too close to the wedding maybe I'll worry about it, but for now I'm just gonna trust in what they say".

Bettencourt said officers were told the store still had about 50 dresses that had yet to be picked up, so the employees were planning to ship them to customers' houses.

When she went to the store earlier this week for a final fitting, she had no clue the shop was closing. The Parkside Drive store in Turkey Creek was one of them. "He told me that the seamstress had my dress", Edwards explained. Instead, she was directed to call the corporate office with any questions, Damon said.

"At this moment, I'm freaking out", she said. They may learn more on Monday. Alfred Angelo bridesmaid customers in the same position will receive 20% off the current price of all bridesmaids dresses at David's Bridal.

"[Employees] would not speak to reporters, but told a group of anxious customers to contact the law firm listed on the door and that the company had not paid them for work this week".

"I was definitely one of the lucky ones", she said.

"They had signs up in the store saying they weren't accepting debit card or credit card transactions". They were also selling only what was on the floor. The lawyer handling the case says she has received more than 7,000 emails about it.

Alfred Angelo's failure led Alex Pacifico and her co-workers at the company's bridal store near Dayton, Ohio, to spend Thursday essentially running a guerrilla retail operation.

"At the end of the day, all that really matters is that I get to marry Josh and that I'll be surrounded by all of my friends and all of our loved ones".
