When we were getting married my wife had her bridesmaids go to Clara Milas for their dresses. The clerk measured them, they found a dress style that they liked and the orders were placed.

A few months later the owner contacted the bridesmaids and stated she couldn't fill their order because the dresses weren't available in the sizes that were needed. She then stated that the clerk that took the original order was "out to get her" and that she had screwed up a number of orders. She refunded the deposits, never said she was sorry or offered any other solutions and left my wife and the bridesmaids scrambling to find other dresses. They went to David's Bridal and had no problem getting dresses.

Signed up for a 3 year contract. After 2.5 years had problems with my phone line and since this is what the system is set up through I tried to contact them with some questions. I was told to call ADT directly and then ADT said I needed to speak with SOS about it. After several unanswered calls and voicemails I faxed my cancellation notice and went with another company. Surprisingly SOS then was able to contact me but mostly with threats, bullying and lies. What can I say other than you do not want to do business with these people.

My experience at Maram's was amazing. The owner was professional, helpful, and very nice. He found me just what I was looking for. He even gave me a free dress for my pageant- Its beautiful. The atmosphere of the store is perfect,and I don't know where the negative over-exaggerated reviews came from- It was the perfect place to get a beautiful dress :-)

This place doubled billed my charge card not once but twice. I will never go there again. They are scammers. I tried to contact them by phone and wouldn't you know it it's been disconnected. If you go only pay with CASH!!

I went to Maram's Dress Shop yesterday to pick up my gorgeous La Femme dress for prom. It's this blue, dazzling, strapless vision of everything I imagined it to be and more. On Tuesday, when I first stopped by, my smaller size wasn't in stock, so the kind owner called the manufacturer to special order the dress for me, and on Saturday I picked it up . I can't believe I didn't visit this special store sooner. Now I know where to purchase dazzling dresses at reasonable prices. I love Maram's Dress Shop! To the woman whose review is below mine- it's really sad that you're that belligerent. Obviously the store isn't affiliated with that seamstress, so of course you can not come in with a seamstress and a dress thinking you can just alter the dress in the middle of the store. How could you expect the owner NOT to ask you to leave? Common sense. And I've met the owner, and he is the kindest, most sincere, passionate, businessman I've ever met. My dream prom couldn't have been complete without my dream dress, which I found at this excellent store. BTW, it's really cool that you spend your spare time writing about your own personal issues. And I'm really impressed that you spelled "elsewhere" wrong. :)

This store doesn't even deserve one star!!! I spoke seamstress that agreed to meet us at Maram's and alter my daughter's prom dress. We went to the store to meet her and the owner freaked out on us. He immediately YELLED at us to GET OUT! He was screaming "YOU NEED TO LEAVE NOW, GET OUT OF MY STORE!" He was holding my daughters dress and proceeded to throw it back at her as he screamed at us in front of everyone at the store, including my best friend and her daughter (who were also getting alterations but bought their dress at the store). He then told me how the seamstress (who didn't work for him- she just helped him out) wouldn't be able to alter my daughters dress and again told us to get out. According to my best friend and the seamstress- he proceeded to tell EVERYONE that walked in after us how he kicked us out. If it wasn't store policy to have our dress altered there, it should have been squared away between the seamstress (who I must say let us come to her house and she was great about the whole thing) and the owner. NO ONE should be treated like that, ever! all we did was walk in unsuspecting and he lashed out at us, humiliated us and made my daughter cry. He is a total bastard and I would NOT recommend this store to anyone. The dresses are highly overpriced and poor quality anyway- so just do yourself a favor a look else ware! My daughter has two more proms, I would drive her two hours away to look before we went into that hell hole again! I do not work for the competition as one reviewer suggested- I had a terrible experience at that store, the owner is just unbelievable. Is embarrassing a 15-year-old and making her cry a good business practice? I will spread the word too! I am going to review on every site, write letters and teach this cocky jerk a lesson!

Glad I wasn't the only one to feel this way...a very nice selection of fabrics that are near impossible to come by anywhere else in the Buffalo area, but the owner is less than hospitable. Would like to support local business, but I think I'll keep buying from my fellow sellers on etsy.
