HARTFORD (CN) – The state of Connecticut says a bridal shop closed too abruptly, leaving 18 brides-to-be with unfilled orders bridal gown orders. It sued Classic Images, of Danielson, in Superior Court.
Attorney General Richard Blumenthal says Classic Images sold bridal dresses, bridal party dresses, and groom attire for more than a decade before closing abruptly late last year. He claims that Classic Images failed to fill orders starting more than a year before closing.
“Classic Images made the classic mistake of soliciting sales and taking money when it knew it couldn’t deliver,” Blumenthal said. “Our goal is full refunds for the brides, even if we cannot bring back the wedding. Tough economic times do not excuse – in fact, they exacerbate – the harm done.”
