Area Bridal Shops Stepping Up After Sudden Closure

Posted: Updated:

FARGO - The announcement from The Bridal Shop's management came only two days ago: they'd be closing their doors; they didn't know when. Now, worried customers are finding the doors locked and their phone calls unreturned.

Bride-to-be Breanne Schlindwein came to Valley News Live on Monday with her story, concerned that The Bridal Shop might default on their orders. Following the sudden closure, she's had to scramble to find a new gown and dressed for her bridesmaids.

"We have worked with Alan Evans [Bridal Shop]," Schlindwein says. "They have been great, but the sad thing is, my bridesmaids all have to pay double."

Schlindwein is not alone. Bride-to-be Jill Rewertz has found herself in a similar situation. With her wedding just a couple of weeks away, she's had to ask her bridesmaids to come up with an additional $200 for new dresses.

With The Bridal Shop out of business, its former competitors have been working extra hard to pick up the slack. Some, like David's Bridal in Fargo, are offering special deals and seeing a lot of interest; employee Dawn Chadwick says the phone there has been ringing off the hook.

Attempts to contact The Bridal Shop have been unsuccessful. Valley News Live report Jennifer Titus knocked on the door Wednesday and received no response, although there appeared to be people within. They could not be reached by phone.

Many Bride Shop customers we spoke with are seeking reimbursement and have filed fraud claims with their credit card companies.
