Additional Notes

Complaint: I went to Dora Grace with my daughter and purchased a dress, took it home and showed Dad and he was not pleased. I called Dora Grace Store withiin two hours of purchase and asked to return the dress. Dora Grace owner offered an exchange and then refused to do a refund. Dora Grace Store has my money and she has the dress. Dora Grace has refused to refund my money. I would never again go to or recommend Dora Grace as a Bridal store to shop at. As you can see I am not the only complaint regarding this same issue. The ONLY thing that Dora Grace cares about is the money and getting the dresses out the door. The store manager does not care about her customers.

Desired Settlement: I would like you to be an honorable store and refund my money to my credit card, you have the dress and the money of over a thousand dollars.

Business Response: I have attached the documentation that the customer signed upon purchase of the dress.  A "no refund or exchange" policy is common practice for bridal stores so I will not apologize for a policy that protects my store nor can I make exceptions.  The customer's dress has been stored in the back of our store as it was brought back to the store even with the knowledge that we would not be taking the return, but I am happy to ship it to the address listed within the complaint or it can be picked up at the customer's convenience.  

Consumer Response: ***** *********** *** ******* ********** ************************ ********* ******************* *** ********************** ***** **** *** *** **** ** **** ** ******** ** ********

I am sorry I do not feel that the complaint has been resolved.  The respondend offered a refund as an in store credit and she offered to exchange and then she reniged.  The dress store has been less than honorable.  The dress store still has ALL the money and the dress that i was pressured into purchasing.  I feel that the BBB has done nothing to help resolve the issue.  I will offer a resolve to the issue.  The dress store charge a 15% restocking fee and refund the rest of the money. 
**** *********

Business Response: First off, we are shipping your dress back to the address provided since this seems to be a major point of frustration for you that we have both your dress and your money.  Since you brought it back to my store despite being told we would not return it, we've had no other option than to store it hear until we heard from you.  

You were never once pressured into buying this dress.  Your daughter had been shopping at 7 different stores and ended up liking this dress the best.  Bottom line.  I am sorry that your husband did not like it, but that is no reason to start slandering a store that was nothing but helpful during your shopping experience.  Even our seamstress came over during your appointment and gave feedback about the fit of the dress and how it could be altered which is not something she would normally do.  

Again, according to the document that you signed I do not have to offer you an exchange or a refund.  At this point you should consider finding other options to sell the dress such as,,, Craigslist or a consignment store.  Or convince your husband that his daughter liked this dress when she bought it, felt beautiful in it, and wants to wear it on her wedding day.  

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:  the store owner did offer another option and now she has chosen to not stand behind her word.  I am not slandering your store, my opinion is not slander.  My next option is going to be protesting outside of your business with signs ( on the public sidewalk of course) to discourage patrons from purchasing at your establishment and I will be leaving negative feedback on the BBB website for all to read and I will be posting on Facebook for all to see that your store is not the best place for people to spend their wedding dollars.
