'Alfred Angelo just turned me into bridezilla!'
Around 10 out of 62 stores nationwide are thought to have closed their doors, amid reports that Alfred Angelo is filing for bankruptcy, NBC5 reports. This has not been confirmed by the company, which has not put out a statement or reassured customers still waiting on dresses and other bridal items.
Many people took to social media to express their disappointment and frustration with the news. “Alfred Angelo sounds like they won’t honor the three bridesmaid dresses already ordered and paid for for [my] wedding,” wrote Twitter user Danny Surman.
Ohio bride-to-be Amber McGraw said she didn’t know how to describe the “sick feeling” she had paying “for a wedding dress I won’t get.” She added: “I’m getting married in 64 days and now have to look for a new dress and hope I find the money to pay for it #robbed.”
And also on Twitter, Cassandra Gallego wrote: “Like to think I’ve been pretty zen through this wedding planning process but Alfred Angelo just turned me into bridezilla!”
Innovative competitors have began offering discounts to disgruntled customers with Alfred Angelo receipts, including the retailer David’s Bridal.
TIME contacted Alfred Angelo for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.
