Brides were in for a surprise when they were met with locked doors at Alfred Angelo and a sign reading “due to unforeseen circumstances, we will only be open to customers who are picking up their orders.”
“You don’t find the perfect dress more than once, so now I have to start back all over again,” said soon-to-be bride Ryan Cassidy.
She is one of several brides-to-be showing up at the store in the Galleria area, trying to come up with a plan B.
“I put a 60 percent deposit down and found out via Facebook last night that they were filing for bankruptcy,” said Cassidy.
According to a store manager, Alfred Angelo Bridal is closing all three stores in Houston and 63 stores nationwide.
