Wausau bridal, prom dress store closing after a decade

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAW) -- 'With This Ring' bridal store will be closing it's doors after a decade of helping Wausau area brides, grooms and prom-goers on their special days.

The owner of the boutique, Jill Nezworski, says it’s time for her to retire after running the business herself with the help of one seamstress for the past decade. She plans to close the doors for the last time on May 31.

“We had some really good times here,” Nezworski said as she looked around her shop full of beautiful gowns. “I’ve been here for 10 years, every day, six days a week,” she added. “I just had a granddaughter and that has made me realize life is going by fast and I should spend more time with family."

The store, located on 3rd and Dekalb, sells everything from prom dresses, tuxedos, wedding gowns, and bridesmaid dresses along with accessories.

“I’ve had people come in originally looking for their prom dress, then a few years later they come in looking for their wedding dress,” Nezworski explained. “A few times they come back years later to show me their babies. We are really like a family here.”

From now until she closes the store, everything in the store is 15 to 50 percent off. Staff at the boutique says if you plan to be fitted for a suit or gown before they close, call ahead of time to schedule an appointment at 715-849-9459.

With this Ring boutique will remain open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
