ST. LOUIS, Mo. — There’s another retail casualty in the works. David’s Bridal plans to file for bankruptcy.  The company’s CEO released a statement saying the retailer is initiating a plan for a financial restructuring.

Nearly to $400 million in debt could be removed after chapter 11 bankruptcy is filed.  David’s Bridal currently has over 300 stores.

The retailer plans to keep all of the stores open during the restructuring as well as complete dress orders and alterations.

This statement was posted to the company’s website:

To Our Valued Customer,

David’s Bridal has been the leader in the wedding industry for over 60 years. During that time, we’ve seen a lot of things change: fashion trends, where brides find inspiration and how customers shop. But one thing will always remain the same: our commitment to you, our customer.

To underscore this commitment, we have announced a plan to financially restructure David’s Bridal. This agreement allows us to guarantee no change in the service level our customers expect from us.

Our 300+ stores will continue operating, and all orders and alterations will be delivered as promised.

We are, and will continue to be, open for business.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
