A lot of brides to be are pissed at bridal retailer Alfred Angelo, after the chain announced that they have filed for bankruptcy and won’t be able to send out the rest of their orders.
The company released the devastating statement on their website saying, “The Chapter 7 Trustee greatly regrets the upset that Alfred Angelo’s July 14th bankruptcy filing has caused its customers. While we have been successful in obtaining customer records and delivering many dresses and accessories for customers all over the country, even after the bankruptcy filing date, it has now become apparent that the logistical and financial strain of fulfilling each and every open order makes continuing that course of action no longer possible.”
“Thus, to the extent any order has not been fully delivered to a customer, it shall have to remain unfilled.”
The news apparently wasn’t just a shock to customers but also to the staff. Company employees were reportedly told that morning that the store would close at the end of the business day. Managers were told to return their keys after closing.
David’s Bridal has offered to help out these brides by offering special deals and discounts to those affected.
