Synchronicity Boutique Aiding Brides Impacted by Retailer Alfred Angelo’s Abrupt Bankruptcy


BALTIMORE (July 14, 2017) Synchronicity Boutique – Maryland's largest and most honored, special occasion clothing store – is stepping in to help brides who are panicking after the abrupt bankruptcy of venerated industry manufacturer Alfred Angelo.

Regarded as the world’s leading manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of wedding gowns, bridesmaids and dresses for other formal occasions, Alfred Angelo has shut down its stores and ceased deliveries to other retailers across the United States. Brides and bridesmaids nationwide have tried to get into the closed stores to claim their dresses, while countless others have taken to social media to express their frustration.

Now through July 28, Synchronicity Boutique will offer all affected customers with an Alfred Angelo receipt a 10 percent discount on Bridal Party and Mother of the Bride/Groom orders and purchases, if paid in full, along with a discount on "rush order fees" if a rush order is necessary.In fact, the Boutique already has helped one local bride and her entire wedding party whose wedding is just three weeks away.

“Alfred Angelo’s closing is beyond disturbing and I can’t imagine how devastated these customers are after paying their hard earned money for their dream dress and now find themselves to square one with their weddings rapidly approaching,” said Synchronicity Boutique Owner Karen Mazer.

Synchronicity is no stranger to saving the day. “We have always tried to help people who have fallen prey to online scams, who have ordered dresses from other stores that did not arrive on time, or who have been distraught when other stores have suddenly closed without notice, had fires, etc.,” Mazer said.

Named “Baltimore’s Best” and awarded an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau, Synchronicity Boutique has the largest selection of long and short dresses and gowns for every occasion, with sizes 000 to 26W IN-STOCK. It outfits customers of all ages for weddings, galas, military balls, pageants, cocktail parties, proms, Bat Mitzvahs, Cotillions, homecomings, ring dances, graduations, Quinceaneras, Sweet Sixteens, college formals and other special events.
