Dan Kerr Brides, located on Lancaster Road, was still being run by family members and has been supplying dresses, accessories and suits for over 100 years.

Insolvency practitioners Leonard Curtis Recovery, of Bamber Bridge, have been brought in to handle the administration process.

There was also a store in Blackpool where a note has been left in the window explaining letters would be sent to customers this week.

The statement said: “The statement said: “We regret to have to inform customers that after over 100 years of trading as a family business, we have no alternative but to close down.

“The stock and assets are all being moved to safe, secure storage, and individual letters will be sent to each customer in relation to dresses which have been ordered/paid for.

“We would urge customers to wait for the letters… prior to any written correspondence only, with Leonard Curtis at the above address, with any queries.”

The store in Lancaster Road was having stock removed when we sent our reporter over this afternoon.
