No employees in the North Attleboro store or the corporate office were available for a request for comment by ABC6 News.The reason for the sudden closings is still unknown.

Alfred Angelo is closing all stores.

It remained unclear whether customers would receive items they'd ordered and paid for.

Social media postings began circulating Thursday saying that the company is going out of business.

But Clerks for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida said this morning that nothing had been filed yet by the company. The company plans to hire the law firm Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson to handle the issue, according to the Journal.

Brides are not the only ones blindsided.

Alfred Angelo has two other locations in MA, in Danvers and Dedham. Alfred Angelo operates more than 60 stores in the US including at retailers in Nebraska. The shop has yet to hear anything from the company about the status of orders.

When Rosa Dearing got word that stores were closing, she and her other daughter, Jessica, headed to the store, but they said workers could not find Crystal Dearing's $2,000 dress, which she was planning to wear for her wedding in October.

In Dewitt, staff told New York Upstate that the shop would close permanently, but they were not told why.

"I'm really trying to stay calm, but all the money we put into these dresses", Mejia said.

First, they said, the entire store was 50 percent off. The Sun Sentinel reports the signs instructed brides to email lawyers Patricia Redmond at predmond@stearnsweaver.com for more information.

8News chose to pay Alfred Angelo Bridal a visit to try and see what upset brides could do. "We try to help the brides and get it done". All of the company's own stores closed permanently at 8 P.M. on Thursday, with no warning. Still, Rouen is frustrated. The entire cost came to $3,600.

"It's so shady and it happened so quickly", Rouen said. "@theknot @WeddingWire @brides THIS IS SO MESSED UP", one woman wrote. "One of them said they were all fired today". "I'm also anxious about my bridesmaids".

Rick Philpot, of Monroe, said he is out several bridesmaid's dresses. "I said, 'Oh, calm down".
