Living in Gastonia, you come to know any good bridal and formal stores in the area. When I became engaged over Christmas, I knew that Poffie Girls needed to be one of my first stops. When you enter the store, you will immediately fall in love with the charm and southern hospitality that Poffie Girls embodies. I had the pleasure of working with Sara and she was absolutely phenomenal. She took into account my price range and preferences and helped me find my dream dress for under $1000. I would absolutely recommend Poffie Girls to any bride-to-be. I plan to go back to Poffie Girls for my bridesmaid dresses and tux rentals as well! You can't beat their prices or customer service!

My mom and I decided to visit Poffie Girls to try on wedding dresses completely on a whim, having heard about them from an aunt who purchased my cousin's prom dress there. We called on a Friday morning and they were able to give us an appointment for that afternoon! It's a charming little house converted into a bridal boutique that feels very welcoming. We met my consultant Elaine and talked a little about what I wanted and my budget. We were trying to stay around $500 which is really low for a wedding dress. Just so happened they were having a sale that day. Elaine pulled 3 dresses and dress 1 and 3 were amazing. Exactly along what I asked for and both under or around $500. Dress 1 ended up being my dream dress and we got it for $330! Service was fantastic and the atmosphere is wonderful. \nWe went back later for my dress fitting and to look at tuxes for my groom and his groomsmen. We found the staff just as helpful and accomodating and the price was very reasonable. Anywhere from $90-$125 which included everything except socks and underwear. \nThey have something for everyone and dresses for everyone's budget as well as some wonderful sales almost all the time. Royal treatment for a pauper's price.

After going to Anjolique, David's Bridal, New York Bride, and a few others, I finally decided to make the journey out to Poffie Girls and I'm so glad I did. I made an appointment for Saturday afternoon and met my consultant Karen. From the start she was attentive, caring, and just wonderful. I was worried initially because the store seemed very upscale and I only had a budget of about $1,000; however, once Karen knew what I was looking for she pulled several dresses within my price range. After trying a few on, I had finally found my dress. Even so, I didn't leave the store with it because I didn't want to make a hasty decision. At no point was I ever pressured to do anything, but after leaving the store all I could think about was the dress I had tried on. I called Karen later that day to order it. My dress arrived today and I was treated with just as much care as before. Though I only spent $750 on my gown, Karen and the Poffie Girls' staff made me feel like I was getting a $10,000 gown. This is a great shop, well worth the drive for any bride on any kind of budget.\n\nMy advice to other brides is to make an appointment no matter where you go to ensure that you get the individual attention you need. Remember a little courtesy goes a long way.

I was really nervous about shopping for my bridal gown. I had already gone to several shops & couldn't find a gown I loved under $2500. In addition, my wedding is taking place on the beach in Negril, Jamaica & it seems that no one carries practical destination dresses. I found out about Poffie Girls & made my appointment. Sara was my consultant & she was absolutely amazing!! I described to her what I wanted, that it had to be appropriate for the beach & yet still make me feel like a bride. I had pulled 2 or 3 dresses on my own & Sara went a pulled about half a dozen more. All the dresses she picked were right on the money! She new exactly what looked good on me & the style I was searching for. She ended up picking out the perfect dress (with the most perfect price, I could not believe the value of what I was getting). She also picked out a stunning veil that complimented the gown perfectly & even gave me great ideas for dressed up sandals for walking down the isle. From start to finish this was an absolutely perfect experience when it came to finding a wedding gown. When I started to sign the papers & make my payment to order the gown Sara was so happy for me that she gave me a big hug & told me I was going to be an absolutely gorgeous bride & she was so happy to have helped me. This woman is too amazing!!!!! I'm taking my Mom & future Mother-in-law, as well as the entire bridal party here to order the rest of out attire. I also ordered my shoes & jewelry from Poffie Girls. They really take the stress out buying your gown. Their customer service is impeccable, and the value for what your are getting is not to be surpassed. When purchasing your wedding gown, or bridesmaid gown, or even a prom gown, you aren't just a sale to the lovely women at Poffie Girls, you are a chance for them to give you a once in a lifetime experience of fun and excitement, where every woman leaves feeling like a princess indeed.

I was recently a customer of Poffie Girls for my wedding gown. I just wanted to let everyone know what great customer service I received. I came in after another appointment at a nearby dress shop and wow, what a difference! From the moment I walked in I was treated like royalty. Sara was my bridal consultant and she was fantastic. She listened to all my questions/concerns, eased my mind, and made it such a fun experience. I found a dress I fell in love with, however, I did not purchase it that day. Since it was the first day I was out shopping, I wanted to continue to shop around and make sure it was ""the one"". I continued to shop around for a few weeks at numerous shops, and tried on tons of dresses. Still, nothing compared to Poffie Girls. They had best customer service, friendliest staff, and best stock of dresses out of all the bridal shops I visited. I ended up going back and ordering my dress without a doubt in my mind. Poffie Girls even price matched another bridal shop for my dress. Everything, from picking out the dress, finding accessories, to fittings with the alterations department was wonderful. Thank you Poffie Girls for providing excellent service and making my experience the best it could possibly be. It will truly be remembered.

I made an appointment to look for a bridal gown in August, went with my mom and sisters and was so stressed out by their comments I needed to go back. I went back a few weeks later with my two best friends and decided on my gown. My bridal consultant was sweet every step of the way--and very helpful in finding gowns made for my body type. She was even helpful when I decided to look at bridesmaid dresses that day and in fitting my maids.\n\nThe only complaint I have is that the few times I have called with questions the people on the other end of the line have been very short and rude. I guess it's the luck of the draw when you go to Poffie Girls. Elaine is wonderful!

When you are shopping for a wedding, this is THE place to go! A friend of mine got her gown at Poffie Girls and I decided to check it out for myself. I loved the styles they carried and decided on an Aire gown! They are the only ones in the area that carries this line! It was beautiful and I was so happy! My wedding turned out perfect and I was one happy bride!

This was the worst store experience of my life. They are the most disorganized, unprofessional, and disrespectful example of a store I have ever been to. My sales associate and final dress alteration woman were both amazing, that I can say. The problem is with the owner and management team. Every problem I had along the way (first dress came in incorrectly due to their oversight and the designer's, alteration not done properly - instead of being let out my dress was taken in, the hem being a jigsaw puzzle, the fact that I was lectured for 10-15 minutes on my eating habits and how I should diet, my veil that came in incorrectly and had to be delivered 2 days prior to the wedding, the $20 that was shoved at me for being upset with the service, and then the horrible denial and ""it wasn't our fault"" attitude that I received after I sent my complaint e-mail) was made worse by the managers and the owner. Poffie Girls is run by absolutely ineffective and seemingly unorganized management staff who take absolutely no culpability for what they have done. The $3500 we spent there I regret every day. But, at the end of the day, I feel the worst for the wonderful employees (at least my sales associate and my final seamstress) who have to deal with the issues that are with that store. Being in business as long as they have been, I consider a miracle.

I purchased my wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dress and MOB dress at Poffie Girls. For my wedding dress shopping experience, I wanted to feel special. I didn't want to go to these warehouse type places and feel like a number. Poffie Girls is as far from the "warehouse type" that there could ever be. The shop itself is very clean and homey. They make you feel welcome from the moment you step in the door. Sherry talked with me about what type of wedding I was having, my budget and my likes/dislikes of wedding gowns. Sherry helped me find beautiful gowns on the floor as well as the back of the store. She assisted me in trying the dresses on in a huge dressing room with walls and a door (none of that partition stuff). It was a wonderful experience that I will never forget. I felt beautiful and emotional in the gown I chose. We found a veil to go perfectly with the gown as well as earrings and a necklace. I went back to the shop several times after the first visit, and I was never treated rudely. Yes, the shop gets busy on Saturdays, obviously, but if I needed assistance someone came to help me out. Ordering bridesmaid dresses was no hassle with Poffie Girls. Out of six girls, every bridesmaid dress fit except for one who needed alteratons. They allowed my maid of honor to take back and try on numerous dresses until we decided on the right one. There was always a salesperson around to help, but I never felt like I was being pressured to buy, or being watched too closely. My sister also purchased two prom dresses from Poffie Girls. She never had a bad experience with them either. I would absolutly recommend Poffie Girls to anyone who wants the special attention that any Bride deserves.

I was on a tight budget (up to $1,000 @ most) but I have very upscale tastes. I went to all of the budget bridal places (davids bridal ect.) and got okay service, but not the bridal service you want as a bride. I went to Poffie Girls, and I was treated like a princess! I was tended to right away, sat in a pretty little seating area where they spoke to me about what I wanted and my budget. They weren't snooty about my small budget at all (since they also have very expensive dresses). Instead they focused on putting more effort into finding a dress I would love. The attendant went and pulled some dresses for me based on what I wanted and my budget. There was no rummaging through racks of dresses, and no attendant pulling dresses out of my price range daring me to fall in love with something I couldn't afford. It was absolutely stress free, and actually really fun! I felt like a queen being fussed over, and taken care of. They had so many styles, very good quality dresses and gorgeous veils and hairpieces. Definitely worth making the trip! You rarely get this kind of service on a small budget! I can promise you will at the least try on some beautiful dresses, and leave feeling like the princess a bride ought to be!

Pros: Beautiful dresses, best personal service, for any budget

Cons: Alterations can be expensive

We were treated as if we were the only bride in Charlotte! The gown selection was excellent. And we were always well attended by everyone who waited on us. Dresses (we ordered wedding dress and mom of bride dress) were delivered on time. Fitting experience was good and dress fit perfectly when the bride returned to try it on. Poffie Girls is where we will steer anyone who asks about where to shop for a wedding gown or mom dresses.

I visited bridal shops in North and South Carolina and finally found Poffie Girls. I was treated like a queen. Everywhere else that I went, I was shown where the gowns were and left to pull the dresses, take them to the dressing room and help myself. I was so confused when I went to Poffie Girls but was immediately put to ease. Elaine my consultant spent 15 minutes with me finding out what I liked and my budget. While I waited she went to the back and pulled my gowns, put them in the dressing room and helped me into the gowns. I was stood in front of my very own gold framed mirror while my mother took pictures. I must have tried on 20 dresses in one hour and went back to the very first one that Elaine pulled for me. I was treated special every time I entered the store by everyone there. Elaine stayed in touch with me and called me before my wedding to wish me luck. She carried my gown to the car when I picked up for my wedding. I can't imagine shopping any where else for a bridal gown. I also bought my bridesmaids, mothers gowns and my groom got his tuxedos. Truly the best service possible.

I went to Poffie Girls to try on wedding gowns and had a great experience, and I think it was MAINLY due to the fact that I went on a weeknight (they are open late on Thursdays), in the early evening (around dinner time) so there were hardly any other people there. I think if I were to have gone during a weekend, the experience probably would have been a lot different (but that's true with any bridal shop, they tend to be very busy on weekends). My consultant was Diane and she was extremely helpful. She let me try on a large number of dresses, and even let me go into the 'employees only' back room so I could look through the racks myself and pick out the dresses I wanted to try on (from what I understand, they usually dont let you do that, they ask you what you're looking for and then THEY go pick out gowns for you to try on, then bring them out to you). I'm sure this is because they weren't too busy when I was there, but regardless, it was very nice to be able to look myself. The only thing I sort of didnt like was that you can only take pictures of 3 dresses, so you have to pick carefully. But, that's better than not being able to take pictures at all (which is the policy of some stores). Overall, I'd definitely recommend Poffie Girls, but like I said, don't go on the weekend, I dont think you would get as much individual attention, simply because they are very busy.

I recently visited Poffie Girls while visiting my Grandmother in Gastonia. I was so impressed with the service and selection that I purchased my wedding gown, bridesmaids gowns and my mother found her gown even though we all live out of state. I had looked in my home town of Atlanta and there was nothing there to compare to Poffie Girls. I think that local brides would be doing themselves a terrible injustice not to take advantage of this wonderful bridal shop in your area. I will be traveling 4 hours for my alteration fittings and to pick my gown up and I will not mind at all because I know that every detail will be perfect for my wedding. Even with the distance I feel that I will save money because of the prices in Atlanta and alterations will be at least 50% of what I would pay. Service excellent, prices great, selection superb

I recently visited Poffie Girls while visiting my Grandmother in Gastonia. I was so impressed with the service and selection that I purchased my wedding gown, bridesmaids gowns and my mother found her gown even though we all live out of state. I had looked in my home town of Atlanta and there was nothing there to compare to Poffie Girls.

Pros: Loved the Ambiance, Beautiful store

I recently purchased my wedding gown and bridesmaids gowns from Poffie Girls and I highly recommend them to all brides who are looking for service and value. The entire staff was so helpful that I felt like they were my best friends. I visited other bridal shops in the area as well as 2 other states and there was no comparison to what Poffie Girls had to offer.\r\n\r\nI liked the fact that my mother and I did not have to look through racks and racks of dresses and help ourselves instead I was treated like royalty. After talking to me, my consultant was knowledgeable enough to know exactly what would look the best on me. After trying on many of the selections I went back to the very first gown and bought. Everything came in as they promised and alterations put the final touch on everyone's gowns to make them perfect. I feel that brides would be doing themselves a terrible injustice not to visit Poffie Girls.\r\n

I recently got married and went to Poffie Girls to purchase my gown. From the moment I walked in, I felt like the most important person. The friendliness of the staff and the personal attention showed to me by everyone who worked there made me aware that I didn?t want to go anywhere else, which is why I purchased everything there from Tuxedos to invitations. Prior to going to Poffied Girls, I had visited other stores and didn?t get the personal attention like I did here. Often times planning a wedding can be a very stressful time for brides, but with the professionalism and experience these ladies at Poffie Girls have from start to finish, my planning was enjoyable and worry free. I am so grateful to have stumbled upon such an eloquent and knowledgeable bridal boutique and I would definitely recommend them to all of my friends and colleagues.

I've had a great experience with Poffie Girls from my first visit. I had shopped at high-end shops in Charlotte and little shops in the country. Poffie Girls service was on par with the high-end ($6000 dresses) shops, but carries all the affordable brands. It's true that you don't hand pick the dresses; they are kept in the back. The clearance dresses are in the front and you can see all of them. They are no you-know-who $100 sale dresses, they are brand-name gowns that have simply been discontinued. If you are concerned about not being able to see the regular price dresses, check out their designers online before you go. Also, the dress I bought was a designer that almost never lets vendors offer discounts, but the store was having a 20% off sale and they made no exceptions. I saved $300 on my dress.\r\n\r\nYes, new gowns have to be ordered in advance and can take 6 months to ship. It has nothing to do with Poffie Girls. They estimated 6 months for my dress but it arrived over a month early. If you want a dress that you can buy right off the_rack (that has been tried on 30 times and most likely has makeup stains), then you know where you should go. Good luck with customer service.\r\n\r\nAfter reading some of the reviews, I was cautious about using their alterations department. When I went to make my final payment, I told them I was thinking about taking the dress home with me and having it altered closer to my office, and they had no problem with it. They even still pressed my dress for me (you must ask at least a week in advance, but this policy is disclosed on the invoice) and they let me store my dress there for as long as needed.\r\n\r\nDuring each visit, everyone who worked there was super nice. They always showed genuine interest and would talk and joke around with me while I waited for my dress to be brought out, etc. They take pride in their work and it shows.

Cons: dresses are kept in the back

If you ever believe online reviews, PLEASE read what others are writing. This place will cause your wedding to be a nightmare. Avoid them at all costs. Just like everyone else they treated me great until they had my money then they could care less. My dress was crooked, it wasn't steamed, I sat for hours trying to get helped before I finally had to get another customer to help me with my dress. The WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!

My sister bought her wedding dress and we bought our bridesmaid dresses from Poffie Girls for her wedding in May 2008. The sales associates were great the first time we came in - pulled gorgeous dresses and helped my sister try them on and choose a gown. Then, we picked out bridesmaid dresses. I'm a size 10-12, but they insisted I buy a 14, and my size 6 sister order a 12. Both dresses fit horribly and we had to spend a ton of money on alterations, because there was not enough time to reorder in the correct sizes. The other bridesmaid had her dress hemmed at the store, and they hemmed it unevenly. My sister had to go back for alterations 4 TIMES. They took it in on the sides and bust too much, and accused her of gaining weight and that she needed to lose weight (she weighs 102 pounds!). When she told the owner, the alterations woman denied it. She was in tears because the alterations woman was so rude and physically rough with her while altering. She ended up having her alteration fees fully refunded, but the stress this created was completely unnecessary.

I got married in January 08. I purchased my gown, shoes, veil, invitations, and mother's gown. Worst mistake ever! The first time that I went there the staff was awesome. Then I went back for a fitting. The staff was horrible. They helped me get into the dress then after my fitting they sent me downstairs and no one was around to help me get out of my dress, that a woman and her daugther that was trying on a dress helped me out of my dress. When I went back to pick up my dress for the my wedding. It was not even steamed. I had to wait for over an hour to get it. It was such a terrible experience. It just made me so mad to think of all the money that I spent there and they were just RUDE! Please consider when going there that they will be nice at first but when they have your money it will not be a great expereince.

I had a great experience at Poffie Girls. I made an appointment for a Saturday and had the undivided attention of SARA (who was absolutely wonderful) for over an hour. When I went to the store, I had no idea what I was really looking for. I know they must have pulled at least 25 gowns for me to try on. Sara listened to what I liked and didn't like. I was just going to try on some dresses and get a feel for what things looked like on, but I think I found ""the dress""! \r\nIt was a very busy day in the shop due to girls shopping for Prom, but I didn't feel rushed. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend this shop. I think it is important to make an appointment to ensure you get time to try on dresses and you might ask how long the sales representative will be available to help you. \r\nAs far as the comments from others above, I wear about a 14 or 16 in wedding dresses and there were no rude comments made about my figure. Sara pinned all the dresses that wouldn't zip all the way up and pulled back the ones that were too big with a clip. This was a great experience.

Pros: one on one attention, only shop that sells 2BE gowns in NC or SC

My first trip to Poffie girls was nice...the staff helpful and I found a great dress for the value. Well, that was my first and last pleasurable experience with Poffie girls. As soon as they received my money, the staff, including the owner, was snobby, rude and downright mean. They treated my bridesmaids like garbage, even had my jr. bridesmaid in tears when they snapped at her for not standing still enough at the fitting. They acted like they didn't even remember me when I came in for my dress fittings. They wouldn't acknowledge me or even get off their non-business cell phone conversations when I needed assistance. I had been warned my other brides about Poffie Girls 180's...but I went anyway. Learn from me...you do not want to deal with this bridal store. The staff will treat you like gold the fist meeting and then be nasty to you every other time after that. They actually rolled their eyes when I told them I wasn't interested in purchasing from their shoe collection. Brides, buying your dress is a fun experience, and Poffie Girls will only make it a miserable one.

I had the unfortunate experience of purchasing my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses from Poffie Girls. My first experience at the store was so enjoyable. The staff was so helpful and all the women would come in and brag about how "beautiful" I looked in my gown. A lot of my friends had warned me that they had terrible experiences with Poffie girls...I thought they were crazy! Boy, was I wrong. After they received my check, the staff, including the owner, were so rude and downright mean to me, my mother, and bridesmaids. They left my junoir bridesmaid in tears after her dress fitting---they snapped at her told her to stand still! Trust me, you do not want to deal with this bridal store. When I came in for my dress fitting, they acted as if they were annoyed with my presence and I waited in they front lobby while the sales lady talked to her husband on her cell phone for 15-20 minutes before even acknowledging me. This store should be out of business for their terrible service, but unfortunately they will continue to lure happy brides in with their fake charm and tactics. Beware brides, BEWARE!!!!!

Poffie Girls was wonderful from the first time I called to make an appt. I had a list of dresses I wanted them to look up to see if they had any of them on stock, they were so helpful. They informed me these dresses had not been released yet. When I came in for my appt. I was greeted and asked what type of dress I was looking for. My salesperson pulled a few and let my maid of honor, my mom and I pull dresses to try on. I called the next week to set an appt. to try one of the dresses back on- she remembered my and the dress I fell in love with. That is great customer service!!!!!

I am one of a handful of my friends & family who have purchased a dress from Poffie Girls. After my sister's experience with them I swore I would not go back. Unfortunately, for their area they are the only affordable true bridal shops around - and have a pretty excellent and varied selection. However, as much as you may enjoy your experience of trying on dresses and feel that your every need is met in your initial visit, KNOW that once you sign that receipt and pay for that dress your experience will change. I was lucky enough to have a sincerely sweet girl work with me but when it came to ordering my bridesmaids dresses, my shoes and alterations I felt as though I was somehow inconveniencing THEM if I had a question or concern. Not to mention when my shoes came back looking bright white - not ivory like the swatch they were dyed to match - and unevenly colored from the dye I was blown off with "sometimes that can happen". When I asked why no one told me before I had them dyed, it was again brushed off and no one attempted to admit any fault. I was sadly disappointed at having given this store another try. I have seen it three consecutive times now - once you're committed to them financially, you are no longer attended to with any concern. So beware...the lure of great dresses and affordable prices is NOT WORTH the disregard and sometimes a little snobbiness of the ladies that work there. However, know that most of them will never stop trying to sell you more - that seems to be consistant through the whole experience.
And maybe I, my friend and my sister were all just randomly unlucky customers - but somehow I doubt it.

I called 30 minutes before I showed up and they were still willing to work with me! I went to 5 different dress shops that day! They were the most willing to work with me! They listened to what I wanted and pulled dresses for me! They pulled what I was looking for and didn't try to push anything on my at all! They took into consideration my budget too! Dresses that were too big they were able pin or hold so I would have a good idea of what it would looke like or dresses that where to small they also pinned up enough so that I could see what it would look like on. I was able to try the dress I really liked one more than once. They accomidated my every need! They even helped my mom find a dress and worked with my maid of honor and I to find the perfect brides maid dress. I LOVED IT!

Poffie Girls experience was absolutely great. My mom and I were treated as if we were Queens. From the time we walked into the door until the time we left, I felt like I had my consultants undivided attention. She listened to my wants and desires for my gown and she pulled exactly what I wanted. I could not have been happier. She then showed me the many selections of bridesmaid dresses and she even helped my mom find her dress for the wedding. I was amazed at what I felt as a one store shop. I got my tuxedo's, mother's gowns and my gown and veil plus my groom rented us the bentley for our wedding day. I loved my experience at Poffie Girls and I would recommend other brides to call and make an appointment. You too will share in my excitement.

My friend and I just had a very unpleasant experience at Poffie Girls. We drove from out of town (almost 2 hours) because we had heard that they had a ton of dresses. When we got there the only dresses they have out are the ones on clearance. They ask what you like and then they just bring a few dresses out to try on from a back room - you cant browse through all the dresses! Our saleslady was very rude, and made quite a few hurtful comments about our bodies. We both wear about a 12 or 14 dress. She acted like we were huge cows. She told my friend (whos wedding is in July) that she would not have time to order a dress because it takes 6 MONTHS! She then proceeded to tell her that she should lose 40 pounds(which would make her only 115!), then come back in, because she would have to buy a sale dress in stock, and they dont carry any ""that large"". She then said ""sorry we dont have a dress for you"", after we had only tried on 2 dresses, and then basically, ""bye, have a nice day!!"" We had asked to look at bridesmaids dresses also, but she just walked off and went to someone else, so we left, and went to Bedazzled Bridal down the road. Would not reccomend Poffie Girls to anyone! They treated us like they thought we were just in there to waste their time.

My experience at Poffie Girls was unpleasant, to say the least. Unlike every other gown boutique I have been to, the staff at Poffie Girls refused to let me pick dresses out to try on. The saleswoman simply asked what I was looking for, went into a back room, and returned with several dresses that were the opposite of what I described. When I asked to go to the back room to look at dresses for myself, she was very resistant and rude. When I did manage to try on a few decent dresses, she refused to clip them (like other stores do) so that I could see what they would look like fitted to my shape. It's certainly very hard to tell if a dress looks good on you when you are holding it up around you like a tent. I certainly do not recommend this store to anyone.

My experience at Poffie Girls was unpleasant, to say the least. Unlike every other gown boutique I have been to, the staff at Poffie Girls refused to let me pick dresses out to try on. The saleswoman simply asked what I was looking for, went into a back room, and returned with several dresses that were the opposite of what I described.

I purchased my bridal gown and bridesmaids gowns from poffie girls. The staff helped out tremendously with my major purchases. They have a great selection of designer gowns, mother of the bride attire, flower girl, and tuxedo rentals. The alterations staff was great. I recommend them to everyone!

Poffie Girls is a Gaston County traditon. I purchased my wedding dress from them, as did my daughter. Both of us have very fond memories of finding just the perfect dress and being made to feel like a princess by the staff. Customer service could be defined by the wonderful people here. It is a rare experience to find a staff so dedicated to making sure the customer is happy.

PROS: Knowledgeable staff ~ Great customer service
CONS: None

IF YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE MONEY, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND YOU GO TO POFFIE GIRLS. SOME OF THE STAFF CAN BE RUDE AND UNHELPFUL IF THEY DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU ARE WORTH THEIR TIME OR THEIR COMMISSION. IF YOU GO TO THEIR STORE,REMEMBER TO DRESS THE PART IF YOU WANT TO GET SERVICED.

I thought that Poffie Girls was very good. Both of my brothers used them when they got married for their tuxedo rentals. They have a wide range of styles, colors, and sizes to fit whatever it is your looking for. The prices are pretty good too. They worked with us during the fitting and had excellent sales staff to help us and make sure that the fit was perfect. They worked with us on the price to make sure that it was good and usually give you a good deal when your renting as many as we did.
