All Alfred Angelo bridal stores in the United States closed Thursday night forever, according to several reports.

The news came out late Thursday that the company is declaring bankruptcy and closing its stores.

Those include the store at 7555 Youree Drive in Shreveport.

The closure was a shock to many customers and even staff. One former employee claims management was not aware until hours before closing time.

The reports indicate that customers had until 8 p.m. Thursday to pick up any merchandise.

After that, they will be referred to a bankruptcy attorney.

Brides are concerned about what this means for their dresses they have already paid for but have not received.

Patricia Redmond responded to our inquiry and said, "Yes, the company has closed all stores and is filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The company will work with the trustee in every way possible to facilitate delivery of dresses on premises and in transit."

Redmond said there will be more information in the next week.
