Officials are trying to fill existing orders for anxious brides and prom goers. The Buffalo News reports that it appears that the shop owners continued to take orders without ordering the merchandise. In light of this, the shop owners may be faced with criminal fraud charges.
Many are rightfully upset.
According to the Buffalo News, online customer reviews gave the bridal shop an average of 1.5 out of 5 stars. I also found a few sites [site 1; site 2; site 3] which showed a pattern of poor behavior. Again, word-of-mouth is important!
