Anxious Brides Storm Larchmont Bridal Shop That is Going Out of Business

As CBS reports, customers of Me Me and Michelina’s Bridal & Formalwear are concerned that their dresses won't be delivered before the store goes out of business.


Update: 10/9/12 - Kimberly Irwin contacted Larchmont Patch today about dresses that she and several other bridesmaids purchased for her sister-in-law's upcoming wedding.

"We ordered the dresses back in August to ensure we had enough time for fittings etc..and now there are only five months left," she said in an email, adding that they had already contacted the Better Business Bureau.

"[We] were also never notified the store was closing. We now have no idea if our dresses were purchased and no way of contacting the owner," she said.

Another bride, Nerrissa Lalchandani, said that not only does she not have a dress, but her deposit also seems unlikely to materialize.  She has filed complaints with local police as well as the Better Business Bureau.

"I just want to know what happened-the store seemed fine when I placed my order and gave her my deposit in June. And when I called at the end of July to get a ship date, the owner told me not to worry and that my dress would be there by December. She never gave me an order number or a ship date...looking back, she probably should've had those things," said Lalchandani.

There will soon be another empty storefront in Larchmont's Palmer Plaza: Me Me and Michelina's Bridal and Formalwear. 

According to CBS, after rumors that the shop was closing began surfacing, customers began frantically calling the store to inquire about their dresses on order.  When no one called them back, the potentially jilted brides started showing up at the store and pounding on the door to "demand answers."

CBS reports that the store is closing due to "personal problems."

Monica Nybeck, one of the store's customers, told Larchmont Patch in an email that owners never told her the store was closing.

"It was not brought to my attention by the owners themselves though—they just laugh and give snarky responses if asked why the salon is emptying out," she said.

In 2010, we had very good experience with them. Surprised how down-hill they went.
