Labels, which opened in Burnley last year, has promised to give a refund to anyone who buys a dress from the shop if their prom gets cancelled.

A spokesman for the shop, based in the town centre, said: "We realise that prom for young ladies is one of the greatest moments in their lives and at Labels we recognise that Covid-19 prevented some being able to attend the event due to it being cancelled.

"And there is still uncertainty for 2021 proms to get the go ahead."

Labels, which opened in Burnley last year, has promised to give a refund to anyone who buys a dress from the shop if their prom gets cancelled.

Labels has a large selection of dream prom dresses starting from only £35 which were over £500 originally and customers have been invited to go in for a browse and fitting.

Clarets striker Jay Rodriguez cut the ribbon to officially open Labels during a packed out launch ceremony in February, 2020.

Labels, the first store of its kind in the area, sells brand new women's and men’s designer garments at up to 70% off recommended retail prices.

All proceeds from the venture will go towards the charity CARES – Cancer Assessment Rapid Early Support – which is aiming to raise £500,000 towards a new endoscopy machine for Burnley General Hospital’s cancer unit.
