Designer shop selling top names in aid of charity makes generous 'prom promise' to Burnley school leavers
A designer clothes shop selling some of the biggest names in fashion – all in the name of charity – has made a 'prom promise' to school leavers in Burnley.
Labels, which opened in Burnley last year, has promised to give a refund to anyone who buys a dress from the shop if their prom gets cancelled.
A spokesman for the shop, based in the town centre, said: "We realise that prom for young ladies is one of the greatest moments in their lives and at Labels we recognise that Covid-19 prevented some being able to attend the event due to it being cancelled.
"And there is still uncertainty for 2021 proms to get the go ahead."
Labels has a large selection of dream prom dresses starting from only £35 which were over £500 originally and customers have been invited to go in for a browse and fitting.
Clarets striker Jay Rodriguez cut the ribbon to officially open Labels during a packed out launch ceremony in February, 2020.
Labels, the first store of its kind in the area, sells brand new women's and men’s designer garments at up to 70% off recommended retail prices.
All proceeds from the venture will go towards the charity CARES – Cancer Assessment Rapid Early Support – which is aiming to raise £500,000 towards a new endoscopy machine for Burnley General Hospital’s cancer unit.
