Venice bride-to-be receives dress from bankrupt retailer

Retailer Alfred Angelo filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and closed all 60 retail stores Thursday night.

The company sold its dresses at another 1,400 retailers across the country.

FOX23 reached out to Alfred Angelo for a comment, but we have not heard back.

"The company regrets that this action will have dramatic impact on you", Ms. Redmond wrote in the letter, which was obtained by the newspaper.

Dresses that were ready will still ship to brides and bridesmaids. Rush fees on alterations will be waived to help meet event dates within a tight timeframe, and alterations services will be offered for Alfred Angelo dresses as well at the regular price.

As important as the dress is, Martin said she hopes those who weren't as lucky have a happy ending no matter what.

And as Racked shared, David's Bridal is offering deep discounts on anyone presenting an Alfred Angelo receipt. Alfred Angelo bridesmaid customers in the same position will receive 20% off the current price of all bridesmaids dresses at David's Bridal.

Employees at Alfred Angelo's store in Tulsa, Okla., opened on their own Friday morning to help people get their dresses, several customers on the store's Facebook page said.

"There was a blush one that I really liked and it looked really vibrant and when I put it on it was flawless, which is rare when trying on dresses", Wilkowski said. "I was just over the moon", said Woods.

In addition to bankruptcy proceedings, the South Florida Business Journal reports that the bridal chain's headquarters are also the subject of an eviction lawsuit.
