Sparkly Wedding Dresses Fredericton, A new Fredericton bridal boutique, at the centre of a heated battle with the customers in recent weeks, has filed for bankruptcy. A new bankruptcy notice and "for rent" sign have recently been positioned in the windowpane of Sparkle Bridal Boutique on York Street. Grant Thornton Poirier Limited has been appointed the trustee.Last month, more than a dozen brides and bridesmaids gathered outside the boutique demanding answers, when they learned your local store had abruptly closed its doors.
Some brides told CBC News they were ability to hear too many excuses for their late dresses and questioned whether or not the orders experienced been located at all.
Several customers have since managed to get help from other boutiques, but many have lost thousands of dollars on dresses, or dress deposits, said Claire Bowser, who has a friend who was among them.
Bowser has created a Facebook page called Not necessarily Without My Dress and is raising money to help the "girls without gowns who fell victim to the closing of Sparkle Bridal Boutique" recoup some of their deficits.
The Not Without Our Dress Charity Bridal Vaisselier will be held on June 14 at the Delta Fredericton. It will include dinner, live entertainment, a silent auction and a "buffet" of items geared towards brides. Tickets are $45 and only on sale until June eight through Reads Newsstand and Cafe, and Infinity Cheer.
