The largest bridal retailer in the nation filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy Monday after laying off nearly 10,000 employees.

David's Bridal announced in a press release that it plans to operate as normal, and explore selling all or some of its assets.

All orders already placed for upcoming weddings will be fulfilled without delay.

The store is blaming the changing taste in weddings for the decline in sales. This is because casual ceremonies are becoming more popular. Plus, several women are deciding to buy thrift dresses.

David's Bridal CEO said the post-pandemic environment as another factor in its decision to file.

Stores, such as the location in Warren, will remain open as the store searches for a buyer. The stores may close if it doesn't find one.

For those looking for wedding dresses, the David's Bridal in Warren is located in the Howland Commons at 2070 Niles Cortland Rd.

More information on this location can be found on the store's website.
