"The manager at Webster location stated that she was told paid orders will be shipped to the address on file. Then she gave us the lawyer's number to check the status.

I was also told that Alfred Angelo has declared bankruptcy and are closing their doors. None of the stores know when will be their last day.

It's slightly different situations all over the country and none of them know exactly what's going on since corporate is not telling them how to handle customer orders." - Heather Echols
