Hundreds of wedding dresses left by bankrupt Baton Rouge store selling for $300 or less
BATON ROUGE – Bargain-priced wedding dresses will be for sale for two days as landlords try to clear out merchandise left behind by a bankrupt shop.
Alfred Angelo abruptly closed last summer, leaving brides and bridal parties stuck. The closure was so swift that customers at the Towne Center location showed up to find the doors locked in July.
Freaked-out customers rushed to the store as news spread – the store gave some people until 8 o'clock one night to get their dresses.
After it closed, the company left behind seven hundred dresses at the Baton Rouge location. Untouched for months, mall managers finally got possession of the store to lease it to a new tenant. Now, they said, they are trying to get rid of the dresses left behind and help anyone who may have been hurt by the closure last year.
The store will open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 9 and 10, and dresses will be on sale. Wedding dresses are priced at $300; bridesmaid dresses are at $100, according to a social media post about the upcoming sale.
Sizes range from two to 26, a representative told WBRZ.
