We’re getting ready for another Prom Dress Sale just a few short days away on Saturday, March 24, 2018. If you’ve never been to our sale before, or are looking for some information on how the sale is organized, you’re in the right place!
To provide a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone, there are three easy but important steps to enter our sale:
STEP 1: Get a ticket!
Starting at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 24, 2018, numbered admission tickets will be distributed at the front of the church facing Rochester Road on a first come, first served basis.
Tickets are solely issued for crowd management and security purposes. The tickets are completely free of charge and there is no obligation to purchase a dress.
Two Types of Tickets
There will be two types of admission tickets issued at the church entrance. Both tickets are issued from the same line.
- The regular admission ticket will get you into the main sale area, which includes everything except bridal dresses.
- The second admission ticket is for bridal dresses only, as they are in a separate area of the sale. Customers interested in a bridal dress should obtain this second ticket at the entrance.
A maximum of one regular and one bridal dress admission ticket will be issued per customer who is physically present in the ticket line. Multiple tickets exceeding this limit will not be issued to the same customer.
Who must get a ticket?
EVERY PERSON 12 years of age and older who wants to enter the sale area must obtain a ticket, even if someone is not buying a dress. For example, if a mother and daughter come to the sale together, and the mother wants to accompany her daughter on the sale floor, both must get individual admission tickets.
Customers who do not obtain an admission ticket are welcome to wait in the seating area, but will not be permitted to enter the sale area for any reason until all other ticketed customers have entered.
To be fair to all who are attending the sale, there are no exceptions to this policy. If you are unsure if you want to enter the sale floor, we strongly recommend getting an admission ticket just in case.
STEP 2: Return by 8:30 a.m. for announcements!
Once you obtain a ticket, this will reserve your space in line. Many customers will go to nearby convenience stores or restaurants to get breakfast before the sale begins. Walmart, Sheetz, Dunkin Donuts, and other stores are all within a one to three-mile drive from the church.
At 8:00 a.m., an indoor waiting area will open. All ticketed customers should return to the church no later than 8:30 a.m. for announcements.
Restroom facilities, which will open at 8:00 a.m., are available but extremely limited in number at the church. Due to security reasons, no restrooms will be available at the church prior to 8:00 a.m.
STEP 3: Listen for your ticket number!
Beginning at 9:00 a.m., tickets will be called in numerical order in groups of 25 to 50 at a time to enter the sale. This will continue until all ticket numbers have been called.
