After more than a decade of serving Northland brides, Brides by DeBora Rachelle is closing, but the company is not going out of business.

Three years ago, DeBora Rachelle began designing a line of prom and evening apparel. Due to the success of this line and the launching of DeBora Rachelle's national magazine "Prom Magazine" in 2002, the company will continue to design and sell dresses.

DeBora Rachelle Inc. serves customers worldwide and is expanding its sales force in Duluth. Tom Crassweller, former owner of Cimmaron's, has joined DeBora Rachelle and is in charge of leading the wholesale line into the future.

DeBora Rachelle dresses are designed in Duluth, made in China and distributed and sold to retail customers through the Web site at http://www.PromDressShop.com . Prom Magazine is produced in Duluth, distributed nationally out of New York and may be purchased at local stores.

A store called Reminisce has been opened next door to Brides by DeBora at 1017 W. Central Entrance, by a former seamstress for DeBora, Tracy Grandi. Current orders with Brides by DeBora may be picked up and alterations may be made at Reminisce.
