Alfred Angelo Files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Closing All Stores Daniela Forte Content Manager

Damon got wind of the store's possible closing on Thursday.

Amber McGraw, 27, said she felt "utter heartbreak" when she found out Friday morning that the Dublin, Ohio location had been shuttered. "Unfortunately, we can't give you your money back but you can come in and look at the dresses we have, '" Heather Fleming, who had paid $1,600 for her dress and other items, told the Seattle Times.

"If any of you need any assistance with either a new dress or alterations, we have close to 500 bridal gowns in stock and can do alterations within one day!" "As a result, all stores are closed", the company wrote.

Alfred Angelo designs are sold at 1,400 retailers across the world with more than 60 stores in the U.S.

As for Kristen's veil and one bridesmaid dress that still hasn't been shipped, she says she's been fortunate up to this point, still holding out hope.

Casey Pereira who will be getting married on Sunday told Call 12 for Action that the whole scenario is a stressful one.

It remained unclear on Friday whether Alfred Angelo customers would receive items they'd bought.

"They called us names". The company announced closure of its stores without informing the customers in advance and there are many customers who have ordered their wedding dress with the company.

"We pulled about 120 dresses", said Ballew.

With so many hearing of the news as it broke online, understandably brides-to-be were left absolutely furious over what happened.

Alfred Angelo filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on July 14, 2017. And it gets pricey.

While Redmond's immediate worry were the two dresses due Saturday, the retail victims of the Chapter 7 filing threaten to only expand in the coming days and weeks as more wedding dates approach.

That might seem like a lot, but it's small compared to the $82,299 average for couples in NY.

The website said the company's wedding, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses are available at over 1,400 retailers in the USA and worldwide, as well as more than 60 Alfred Angelo Bridal Signature stores in the U.S.

Calhoun said she feels lucky and knows it could be much worse.
