Rip off shop!
51 brides allege Colo. dress shop ripped them off

(AP) – 19 hours ago

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Police have launched an investigation after a Colorado bridal shop closed and allegedly failed to deliver wedding gowns that were bought and paid for.

Fort Collins police spokeswoman Rita Davis says that as of Tuesday, 51 brides had contacted authorities, saying Mountain Avenue Bridal had failed to provide them with dresses they purchased.

Davis says police and employees of the bridal shop are working with the brides to find an appropriate dress from 50 sample dresses seized from the store. Only one bride has taken a dress, while two have chosen veils.

A call Wednesday to a number listed for store owner Patty Burling was unanswered and the voice mailbox was full. The Coloradoan newspaper reported a similar occurrence involving prom dresses at a shop owned by Burling in Glenrock, Wyo., that closed earlier this year.

Davis declined to say what charges Burling may face.

That is horrible! I can't imagine going through that! The owner should be forced to pay back money and should never be able to obtain a business liscense again! I can't believe someone would do that! I hope she faces charges!

Is crazy, seriously lots of people already try to rip us off, any item with the word wedding on it goes up in price by lots, but man this girl’s maybe heart broken! I hope they get their money and find another dress that they will love.
