The David's Bridal in Winston-Salem, NC, is the bridal shop I attempted to purchase a dress from. When I arrived, I immediately felt rushed and like all they wanted was paperwork from me and I didn't even know if I would purchase a dress from there. I tried on dresses with little to no help from the consultant(s). The manager continued to come by expressing her stress and was completely out of control of the situation. It made me feel stressed. They made it very clear that they had no clue what they were doing and would much rather be doing anything but selling wedding dresses. It was awful. Staff were not very friendly and I felt like I was a bother by just being there. We left early. I just told them that I did not see a dress I liked and left it at that. I told them I was not interested in a dress from David's Bridal. The sales consultant told me I had to pick at least one favorite dress or two and I picked one that I would NEVER have selected because I did not want to be rude and left it at that. Within the next 1-2 weeks, I realized why all of my information was gathered. I started receiving phone calls at all hours of the day from David's Bridal and Men's Wearhouse and various other places related to wedding planning. The worst part was that I started receiving phone calls at all hours of the night from time share who explicitly stated that they received my information from David's Bridal. I confirmed this with all places that called. Which made sense because I had not been anywhere else that even asked me for a phone number. It was obvious and they gladly confirmed David's Bridal gave my information to them. I received a follow-up call a while later from David's Bridal in Winston-Salem, NC and I told them about what happened and my experiences and they were not very nice about it and said that they would take my name off their calling lists. A few weeks later, I received another call from David's Bridal in Winston-Salem, NC. They were not calling to see how the phone call situation was going, they were calling to see when I wanted to come back and purchase a dress. What a joke. At this point, I explained my dismay at how I was still receiving phone calls and even considered changing my phone number. They were rude and said they had already taken me off the call list and that they didn't know what else to do. I told them that it was starting to verge on harassment and it was getting too serious. No help provided. I received a third call from the store, at which point I was still receiving phone calls from various vendors and stores and time shares and anything else in between all stating that they received my information from David's Bridal. What.a.nightmare. On this third call, I asked for the District Manager's contact information. They told me that was confidential and they were not allowed to give that informatio out. I explained what was going on, again, and asked them what I needed to do to get this resolved outside of changing my phone number. The girl, with a very nasty attitude said, "We don't sell your information. UGH. BYEEEE!" and slammed the phone. I never once said the word "sell." hmmm... I actually never even thought about that as a possibility until she said it. I am not concerned about money being exchanged, I just want off that call list. I called the David's Bridal in Greensboro, NC, and explained what happened to them. They apologized and said that they could give me the District Manager's phone number and that was apparently not the first time someone complained about DB in Winston-Salem, NC. And btw, the number is not listed online. I called the District Manager and no surprise, she didn't call me back. I called mutliple times over a course of several weeks and never received a call back. When I started looking up reviews online of David's Bridal in Winston-Salem, NC and apparently DB in general, this was nothing new.
