That’s what happened when Alfred Angelo shuttered 60-plus retail stores across the country without warning to many brides counting on them.
Fortunately, kind souls everywhere are stepping up!
Some of the brides got frantic calls from helpful employees, telling them to pick up their dresses ASAP.
But others didn’t get calls or didn’t have their dresses ready. They’re understandably afraid that they’ll lose their dress or deposit, in addition to having to scramble for a new dress!
People, the victims especially, are surprised and upset that a company that knew about this decision didn’t notify their customers.
But that anger doesn’t solve the problems at hand for many desperate brides-to-be.
As this tweet shows, the company knew, but didn’t tell.
Being in the bridal industry, they certainly knew how traumatic this would be for their “valued” customers.
Fortunately, kind souls who no longer had a use for their wedding dresses were quick to step up.
They offered theirs as loaners or to keep.
It’s not clear if this was a chain reaction or if they all thought to help on their own, but it’s a great gesture.
Beyond that, it actually helps solve the problem that must be causing thousands of brides insane levels of stress.
