Reports of Alfred Angelo Bridal closing has customers anxious

Janel said if the company can not fulfill her store's orders, Valens plans to refund the brides out their own pockets. The move has incensed brides-to-be across the country - many of whom have already put down hundreds of dollars in deposits for wedding and bridesmaid dresses. Her wedding is October 1, and she is still waiting for several bridesmaid dresses. "I paid. I was there on Sunday, and next thing I knew I called the store and it kept on ringing and ringing", Moy said.

Police in Henrico County confirm there was an incident at the Alfred Angelo store in the Richmond area.

Brides across the country are anxious about their big day after being told that one of the world's largest wedding dress retailers has filed for bankruptcy.

The store employees were not willing to speak with us. I cannot get you your original gown, nor can I get you your money back (If you paid by credit card all your customer service number immediately) but we will try our best to deliver you a gown without rush fees or extra charges. No one responded to knocks on the store's door.

Neither the corporate managers nor the local managers of the stores would give comments when requested.

When Kerr got there, the door was locked. "It just hurts", she said.

"I tried to pick my dress up but they said they didn't have it", bride-to-be Caitlyn Sylva told the station.

"About $800", said Zenobia Nance.

"It's mind-boggling, you know, especially considering that everything I read said these employees didn't find out until this morning so now you've got brides and bridesmaids, mothers, mothers-in-laws calling and they're absolutely irate and what do you tell them?"

So, 8News stopped by that seamstress' house, but someone home closed the blinds on us.

Hear from Alfred Angelo customers about the dress disarray tonight at 11 p.m. on ABC6.

8News asked the man inside if they are telling brides that they have their dresses inside.

It is not quite clear when those answers will come.
