We still can’t get over just how poorly this whole thing has been handled!
In case you hadn’t heard, Alfred Angelo unexpectedly shut down ALL of its retail locations last month and filed for bankruptcy, leaving brides who had yet to receive the wedding dresses they ordered from them wondering what the hell to do. Thankfully a ton of stores have stepped up to offer discounts to brides affected by the Alfred Angelo store closures, but I know so many were also hoping to somehow get the Alfred Angelo dress they had ordered delivered to them. Well, it turns out that is most likely NOT going to happen if you haven’t received it already. The company (or it’s legal representatives) just released this statement on their website:
Statement from the Chapter 7 Trustee:
The Chapter 7 Trustee greatly regrets the upset that Alfred Angelo’s July 14th bankruptcy filing has caused its customers. While we have been successful in obtaining customer records and delivering many dresses and accessories for customers all over the country, even after the bankruptcy filing date, it has now become apparent that the logistical and financial strain of fulfilling each and every open order makes continuing that course of action no longer possible.
Thus, to the extent any order has not been fully delivered to a customer, it shall have to remain unfilled. If you believe you are owed any money, please use the link below to complete a proof of claim. Please be advised that neither the Chapter 7 Trustee nor her counsel are authorized to provide legal advice to any affected customer regarding their purchase.
