The bridal boutique that filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last month has indicated it will no longer make good on delivery of dresses ordered by brides across the country.
According to Alfred Angelo’s website, the bankruptcy trustee "greatly regrets the upset" caused by the July 14 bankruptcy filing. It goes on to cite logistical and financial difficulties in fulfilling outstanding deliveries.

“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,” the statement reads. “Thus, to the extent any order has not been fully delivered to a customer, it shall have to remain unfilled.”
Alfred Angelo stores across the country, including in Monroeville and Ross Township, were closed without warning following the bankruptcy filing.
Locally employees were notified the day of the filing. Brides were left unsure if they would receive the dresses they had ordered and paid for.

Also on the Alfred Angelo website, there is a link for customers who believe they are still owed a refund.
Police say you can also file a claim in the municipality where the store is located.
