Yesterday, we reported on Vera Wang’s policy that charged Shanghai shoppers nearly $500 to try on wedding gowns. Today, we have an update!
Wang’s camp issued this statement: “Upon careful investigation and review of the policies of our international operators, we will be abolishing appointment fees in all of our stores. We wish for all Vera Wang customers to enjoy the same standard of excellence worldwide. Treating our customers in a fair and equitable way remains a priority. The store in Shanghai has only been open to private VIP preview appointments. The official opening to the public will take place on April 29.”
There you have it, ladies! No more try-on fees. Props to Vera Wang for the quick response and excellent PR.
