The sale, from November 12 until the 17, will include dresses that are up to 75 percent off, and will only be available to the first 25 women who walk into the store each day. The women will have an hour to find and try on what they may need.

Online shops and features give locally owned businesses more of a challenge these days.

Places like China, too, can create something at a cheaper price and sell it for less, which attracts money-saving customers. However, many people may not get the quality they would expect if they go that route.

Debbie's Bridal of Gonzales has had talk of closing it's doors this month, but they may not have to anymore. It's a catch-22.

"If we sell enough at our sale this week, then I'll be able to cover some expenses I haven't been able to originally," Debbie Gauthreau Traylor, owner of Debbie's Bridal, said.

"I set a time limit for each person because we only have six dressing rooms. We have to be able to give other customers an opportunity to shop this great sale," Traylor said.

Shoes and accessories will also be up to 50 percent off. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the store is open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., and 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.

The week after that, they will be having a sale on prom and Mardi Gras dresses.

"It's really an inventory liquidation sale. We have great prices on all of our dresses anyways," Traylor said.

Debbie's Bridal is located at 1434 N. Burnside Avenue in Gonzales.
