CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., March 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- David's Bridal, the nation's leading bridal and special occasion authority, announced today the decision to temporarily close all of their stores for appointments and walk-ins through April 1, 2020. Store employees will be paid during this time.
"The health and safety of our customers and team members is my top priority," said Jim Marcum, David's Bridal's Chief Executive Officer. "That being said, our business is really like no other. We have the privilege of dressing our customers for some of the most important and emotional times of their lives. David's is committed now more than ever to ensuring that we not abandon her during an already stressful time, and will find ways to serve her in this ever-changing environment. We feel an enormous responsibility to deliver the promise we have made to our customers and can guarantee that every customer will receive her dress in time, before her event date."
As such the company has confirmed:
- Online Shopping, around the clock: As always, clients will be able to shop online around the clock and the brand is open for business at www.davidsbridal.com 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our customers have the ability with one click to buy a dress no matter where it's located throughout our 300 stores or online. For the thousands of customers who are still looking to buy their dresses, David's Bridal confirms that their distribution and fulfillment centers remain open and that they have over 300,000 dresses in stock in the U.S. ready to ship today.
- The stores will be open for curbside pickup: Previously placed customer orders are available for curbside pickup between the hours of 10:30AM and 6:00PM, as allowed by local regulations.
