Sudden closure of Elizabeth Morley Bridal shop in Mansfield

A bridal shop in Mansfield has closed suddenly – leaving some brides-to-be without dresses for their big day.

Elizabeth Morley, known as Morley’s, on Leeming Street, closed suddenly on Tuesday, July 31, after a sign was placed in the window informing customers of the closure.

However, no further information was provided – leaving some customers who have bought dresses in the dark about their purchases.

Bride-to-be Louise Mann, 46, is engaged to marry Brian Kynman, but they are yet to set a date.

Louise said: “I brought my dress from the shop more than a year ago and I left it there, because we had to postpone our wedding.

“I paid for it in cash and I went in a few months ago to make sure she was still happy to keep it for me and she never mentioned anything about closing. I just want to know where the dresses have gone. Someone must know something. I can’t believe this has happened.”
