Saks Fifth Avenue is closing all its bridal salons, save its Beverly Hills and NYC locations. WWD reports the 16 salons closing, in an effort to "make room for higher-growth businesses," will take last orders through December. Locally, this means that Saks' South Coast Plaza bridal salon will be shuttering, along with "Houston; Atlanta; St. Louis; Tysons Corner, Va.; Richmond; Bal Harbour, Fla.; Birmingham, Ala.; Boca Raton, Fla.; Columbus, Ohio; Chicago; Indianapolis; Plano, Tex.; San Francisco, Short Hills, N.J., and Dallas."
