Would you look for, or even buy a wedding dress from Costco?
I have to say it sounds strange, but I shop at Costco all the time and buy name brand items (albeit in bulk) with a nice little discount. My only question is, will brides be ready to give up the pampering they get while “saying yes to the dress”, or paying 60% of the retail price make the cold concrete floors & steel cargo shelves of Costco feel as warm as a boutique.
It will be interesting to see how Costco handles the final point of sale. Will they have a dedicated sales person like they do for cell phones & cigarettes? or will it be like the pile of clothes they currently sell in the middle of the store?
Either way, brides-to-be will find out soon as a partnership with wedding dress designer Kirstie Kelly, will have her Signature collection of wedding dresses on sale at Costco.
A Kirstie Kelly wedding dresses can run as high as $4,000, but it looks like Costco will be selling six different dresses priced between $699- $1,399 (not sure if that $4,000 dress is part of the deal).
