WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Officials are investigating the abrupt closure of a Wilmington bridal boutique that left more than a dozen people without dresses.

The News Journal of Wilmington (https://delonline.us/28R8arH ) reports that the office of Attorney General Matt Denn is investigating the closure of Anastasia’s Bridal after receiving about a dozen complaints from people who bought but never received their dresses.

Bride-to-be Ashley Mashington says her parents spent over $1,500 for a dress and belt at the store. Mashington says she will now have to pay for her dress all over again.

Penn State University Law Professor Marie Reilly says brides can file claims at www.deb.uscourts.gov . She says the bankruptcy code provides for a priority payment of up to $2,775 per person.

Shop owner Luba Anastasia Cawley couldn’t be reached by the newspaper for comment.
