It is Redmond's email address, not one belonging to the bridal retailer, that is on notices that were taped to the front doors of stores that were shut down this week. It filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation in Florida on Friday.
Amber McGraw, 27, said she felt "utter heartbreak" when she found out Friday morning that the Dublin, Ohio location had been shuttered. "So, I'm hoping that's true", said Holly Hershberger, mother of the bride. "It's attractive ... It was supposed to be my dream dress", she said. "We're too close to the wedding to not include them just because they don't have a dress", Damon said.

"They're literally filing for bankruptcy", said Pucci. Her dress is already finished, but not her bridesmaids' dresses.

The store manager had no comment.
Police were called to a store in Tukwila, Washington after employees were flabbergasted to find they no longer had jobs.
"This isn't your typical "mom and pop" store, they had a great reputation, they have stores all over the United States", Groh said. The officers deescalated the situation and it was resolved with no enforcement action taken. Nobody appears to be in that store, and Redmond was mailed the location's key once it closed.
