Brides beware! The Oklahoma Tax Commission recently shut down one of Oklahoma City’s bridal shops, and one Edmond bride-to-be almost lost her dress in the process.
After briefly closing in February and failing to meet a payout plan with the tax commission, Sabra Bridal & Formal, 7101 NW Expressway, closed June 21 with little fanfare–until now.
A spokeswoman from the tax commission said she has already received “several” calls from brides worried about the status of their orders. Sabra is not open for business, but if the store completes a transaction with a customer who has already placed an order, it will not be a violation of the close order, she said.
Although I’m not planning a wedding of my own, I am a recent college graduate who tends to spend most weekends attending bridal events–engagement parties, showers, rehearsal dinners and, of course, the big day–so I’ve heard of Sabra and know it’s a popular bridal destination.
Which leads me to this question: Has this place left many brides empty-handed? If so, I want to hear from them. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
