Founded in 1950, David’s Bridal has dressed thousands of weddings and special occasions over the years. The first David’s Bridal opened in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It rapidly achieved notoriety as the most elegant bridal salon on the East Coast. In the following years, a partnership was formed that revolutionized the bridal industry. David’s Bridal became the first mass merchandiser of bridal apparel in the United States. David’s Bridal is now the largest and fastest growing bridal retailer in the world, with over 300 stores located across the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.
This year, Chain Store Guide celebrates its 80th anniversary. In honor of this occasion, we are hosting a monthly series of editorials called “Chain Store Guide Through The Ages”, starting with the 1930s. We will take a look at what was happening in that time and how it affected the industries we now serve. Our Company Snapshots will examine companies from that period and see where they are today.
