David’s Bridal has filed for bankruptcy protection, the second time for the chain in the past five years.

The announcement Monday arrives days after the company, one of the largest sellers of wedding gowns and formal wear, said it could eliminate more than 9,200 jobs across the United States. Based in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, the company has about 300 stores across dozens of states and employs more than 11,000 workers.

David’s Bridal has three stores in central Indiana: 5025 E. 82nd St. in Indianapolis; 1238 U.S. Highway 31 North in Greenwood; and 200 S. Creasy Lane in Lafayette.

Company leaders are looking to sell the firm, but its stores remain open, and it’s fulfilling orders without delay. Its online platforms also remain available to help people with their wedding planning needs.

The company last filed for bankruptcy protection in 2018 but reemerged a year later. Monday’s filing was made in New Jersey.

  1. While the MGTOW crowd sees this as a win, a lack of a demand for wedding paraphernalia isn’t exactly a win for the furtherance of civilization. Oh well.
