Brides across the US are furious after a popular brand abruptly closed its stores

Brides across the US have been left in limbo after a popular wedding brand abruptly closed its doors Thursday

Alfred Angelo, a brand that sells bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses, has shuttered many of its 60 stores across the US without giving customers prior warning. 

The brand has been in business for over 80 years. Its special occasion dresses are also stocked in 1,400 retailers.

The company has yet to make a comment or reassure customers as to what will happen to their orders. Alfred Angelo has not confirmed that all of its stores will close. 

Irate brides have taken to social media to complain, and many are saying that they don’t know whether they will receive their dress or get a refund.

 Customers say they have been unable to reach stores by phone. 

On Thursday, some customers went to stores to find out what was happening. 

They were told they would have until 8 p.m. that day to pick up orders.

Alfred Angelo did not immediately return Business Insider’s request for comment, and the brand’s customer service line went straight to voicemail. We were also unable to get through to any individual stores.
