by LauraLoo correspondent Mark Payton reported May 23 on high-schooler Jackie Genovese, who tried returning her prom dress to help pay for her boyfriend’s funeral after he was killed in a car accident.

But the store, Freehold’s Diane and Co., stuck to its return policy and would only offer her a store credit. Later it also offered a memorial donation, unknown amount.  Do you think the store should have bent the rules, given the circumstances?


As an aside, I don’t know of any teenager/parent from an average-income household who would pay$1,200 for their daughter’s couture prom dress, not to mention other expenses such as shoes, hairdo, makeup, nails, etc.  Do just rich parents indulge their daughter’s dream for the fairytale prom, or do you actually know average-income folks that would spend $1,200+ to do likewise?  I guess I’m too practical to make such an expensive investment for just one night.  What’s wrong with a dress that’s $100-$200 that can hopefully be worn to other special events after prom?
