RICHMOND, Va. — Bad news continues to roll in for customers who used Alfred Angelo, a chain of bridal stores with one location in Short Pump. The bridal company filed for bankruptcy and unexpectedly closed all of its national stores on July 14.
The Florida-based company, with more than 60-stores nationwide, originally said they planned to fulfill open orders but on Thursday said that it has become impossible to do so.
“Thus, to the extent any order has not been fully delivered to a customer, it shall have to remain unfilled,” the company wrote (the statement can be read in full below).

Alfred Angelo statement on bankruptcy:
The Chapter 7 Trustee greatly regrets the upset that Alfred Angelo’s July 14th bankruptcy filing has caused its customers. 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.
Thus, to the extent any order has not been fully delivered to a customer, it shall have to remain unfilled. If you believe you are owed any money, please use the link below to complete a proof of claim. Please be advised that neither the Chapter 7 Trustee nor her counsel are authorized to provide legal advice to any affected customer regarding their purchase.
