Brides-to-be livid with Cold Spring shop for closing

COLD SPRING, Minn. (AP) - Police and the Better Business Bureau are investigating the closure of a bridal shop in Cold Spring after several brides-to-be said they'd been stiffed.

A sign on the door of Lori's Bridal & Formal Wear says, "This business has closed due to the economy."

Owner Lori Parsons couldn't be reached when contacted by the St. Cloud Times.

Angela Doty says she's angry and frustrated by the closing. A phone number listed on the shop's door says brides can leave contact information, but the number has a full mailbox.

Doty is set to be married May 10, and she's missing a pair of shoes that the shop was supposed to dye ivory.

Police in Cold Spring say the office was "bombarded" with calls on Monday.
