I didn't know these type of businesses still existed. You know, the family-owned kind where the store owner knows you by name (and you know hers because it?s on the sign out front), where she?ll tell you honestly how she thinks you look in that dress, and will let YOU decide what YOU want to buy! Not only that, but she WILL NOT sell you something that doesn't fit or that she doesn't feel is right for you. She will make sure you absolutely LOVE it before you buy it! Rosa's Shop is your neighborhood, family-run shop with amazing service, a FANTASTICALLY HUGE INVENTORY (to the point that it's a little overwhelming!) and GREAT DEALS! This is NOT a fancy bridal salon with ?appointments only? written on the window. You?re ALLOWED to touch the dresses at Rosa?s - heck! You can even take them off the r@ck and try them on!!
I initially went to Rosa?s because she carries a large inventory of the Maggie Sottero dresses that I like. I didn?t find anything I absolutely LOVED the first time, so I went back several months later to give it another shot. Rosa is so kind and friendly that I felt I was walking into a friend's place the second time I went in. After a long hour or so of trying on several dresses (AGAIN) the last one was THE ONE! But Rosa wouldn?t sell it to me because it didn?t fit. Not only did she hold the wedding gown of my dreams for me for nearly 3 weeks in the back while I vacillated between buying it and finding something else, but she actually let me BORROW IT - MORE THAN ONCE - to get several alteration estimates! What trust! What service! In the end, I DID buy the dress AND for an EXTREMELY LOW PRICE!!
Thank you, Rosa, for your trust, your help, your kindness, my BEAUTIFUL wedding gown, and for the absolutely WONDERFUL experience at Rosa's Shop! I hope to be back soon!
Pros: fantastic friendly service, HUGE inventory, inexpensive
Cons: Too much to choose from!
