HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The sudden closing of a well-known bridal shop chain has some brides-to-be feeling burned.
Rebecca Murtoff, like many people, ordered her dress from Alfred Angelo. The dress itself is perfect, but it’s a little big.
Murtoff said she called the store where she placed the order and was told alterations have been halted. As of Thursday, the company reportedly is closing its doors.
Brides-to-be around the country found out just hours in advance, sending shockwaves through online message boards. Hundreds, if not thousands, have already paid for orders now in limbo.
Murtoff said one of six bridesmaid dresses she ordered for her wedding isn’t accounted for at this time. She said the store on Jonestown Road in Lower Paxton Township told her that employees learned Thursday of the company’s fate, but she believes they have known since June.
ABC27 reached out to Alfred Angelo but did not hear back.
