Back in the “good old days” of wedding planning, there used to be this magical place you could go to snag a designer wedding dress for a total steal… and that place was Filene's Basement. I'm sure you recall hearing stories or seeing news footage of deal-hunting brides descending upon the bargain shops for their annual “Running of the Brides” events. Many a budget savvy bride found the wedding gowns of their dreams at Filene's… which is why it was such a bummer when they closed the doors on their 20+ brick and mortar stores in 2011.
So when I heard the news that Filene's Basement was relaunching the company with a brand new ecommerce website, I was over-the-moon excited! The new online shop will launch in just a few weeks, so get your computer mouse charged up and your clicker finger ready, because the deals you'll find online are just as amazing as the ones you'd find in their stores back in the day.
Filene's Basement has a rich history, and anyone who shopped there felt a deep personal attachment to the brand — you might even call them fanatics!! — so I can only imagine how many happy shoppers there will be thanks to this news! FilenesBasement.com is a curated online marketplace for discount branded apparel, accessories, and home goods.
