David’s Bridal files for bankruptcy, but you’ll still get your order

David’s Bridal filed for bankruptcy protection days after the company announced it would lay off more than 9,200 employees across the nation.

The wedding retailer said in a press release Monday that its stores would remain open and fulfill orders without delay as the company looks to sell all or some of its assets. Its online platforms will also remain available to help with customers’ wedding planning needs.

Straddled with debt, the Pennsylvania-based chain also filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2018, but emerged from bankruptcy the next year. Since then, the company has modernized its business, David’s Bridal CEO James Marcum said in a statement.

“Over the last several years, we have taken meaningful strides in our transformation to fulfill the needs of the brides of today and tomorrow,” Marcum said. “Nonetheless, our business continues to be challenged by the post-COVID environment and uncertain economic conditions, leading us to take this step to identify a buyer who can continue to operate our business going forward.”.

How long has David’s Bridal been in business?
