Shopping for my bridal gown was super overwhelming for me. I had my team of bridesmaid & momma in town to help me find The Dress. After many beautiful dresses, my brain got lost in the lace, pearl, sparkle, tulle, etc. I tried on this breathtaking Alvina Valenta dress, but thought it was outside of my price range due to the original store tag still on the dress. I left the store, but couldn’t stop thinking about the gown, so the wonderful staff at The Sample Rack allowed me to come back in as they were closing to try on the dress again. Needless to say, I said YES to the dress and purchased it for 50% less than the retail value. I am very thankful for the patience and kindness of everyone in the shop!
Thank you Sample Rack!!

I cannot say enough good things about The Sample Rack! From my very first phone call with Carlene, I knew I was going to have an amazing experience here. On the phone, Carlene was so excited and made me feel like she really wanted to find me the perfect dress. I was put on a waiting list for a Saturday appointment, and a week later, Carlene called again to let me know that a space had opened up! When we showed up, I was surprised to find out that they only do 1 appointment at a time. This made me feel so special! The store is beautiful, and they have lots of absolutely gorgeous designer dresses. The dress Carlene told me about on the phone turned out to be THE PERFECT dress for me! I got a beautiful designer dress for less that half the price. I would not look anywhere else if you are in the Philadelphia area.

I bought a dress off the rack here after trying on 30+ dresses at 5 other stores in the Philly area. Their dresses are all samples so you buy what you try on. But unlike other samples at other stores, the dresses are all in excellent shape- no tears, stains, etc. The styles they get are also really varied. I was looking for something a little nontraditional and different and they had many choices. They prices are also great. I paid $600 for my dress that retailed for over double that. The customer service is great and the store is small and personal. Highly recommend

Sample Rack was the best dress shop I went to! Carleen was honest, kind, and patient. She never pressured me to buy a dress and made me feel so confident when I did find the one!! Wonderful dresses at great prices too!

Amazing service and selection! I bought my beautiful gown from the Sample Rack and I continuously recommend the Sample Rack to other brides. Carlene and the other ladies were honest to me with feedback regarding how dresses looked on me and alternations. Thanks to the sample rack, I looked like a million bucks on my wedding day with a gown I loved from the day a tried it on to the day I walked down the aisle. Definitely make sure you've visited a few other stores first to know what style you are going for (or at least know what you don't want), that way the sample rack can be the last wedding gown shop you need to visit :)

Lindsay, Jim, and Carlene were the perfect team the day I bought my wonderful wedding dress at The Sample Rack. It was my 6th stop, which was helpful, because I went in knowing exactly what I was looking for. My friends and mom were all allowed to scout the racks and pull dresses along with me which I appreciated. They listened to me and were flexible and willing to add a veil or belt of my choice, and were quick to eliminate those I knew weren't it. Plus, this trio had enjoyable personalities, great senses of humor, and seemed to genuinely want to help me find the dress I wanted. They weren't pushy or overly selling anything, and didn't hesitate to criticize a dress for one reason or another. I could tell they knew what they were talking about. After I bought my dress (with a discount for working at a hospital and paying in cash), I called Carlene to find out more about my dress (the original price and style number, etc.). While they don't always get all information about their dresses, Jim researched and backtracked and got back to me very quickly with this information. An all around fabulous experience! I'm meeting with their rave reviewed seamstress soon to make some changes to the dress to make it even more MINE! :)

I bought my wedding dress here and had a great experience. I had a private session during which I was the only person in the store trying on dresses. The employees pay close attention and are very helpful. The prices are reasonable and getting to walk out with your dress that day is awesome. I am so happy I went there.

Went to pick out my dress on a Tuesday night back in December- they kept the store open for me and brought out tons of dresses which fit my style and price range. I followed their advice and had gone dress shopping at another store before hand so I knew what kind of dress/style I was looking for. My dress happened to be on display in their window and I instantly knew it was "the one" when I put it on. The ladies in this store are extremely knowledgable and professional and I so happy that I went to the sample rack.
