Tang’s Alterations, Bridal, Bespoke Expands Alteration Shop in Manassas
Tang’s Bridal – one the DMV’s top bridal boutiques and alteration shops – is expanding in the City of Manassas. Tang’s has leased an additional 2,000 square feet adjacent to their location in the Canterbury Village shopping center on Sudley Road. Their expanded footprint will house a larger alteration shop, new private fitting room, and showcase areas. In addition to their larger footprint, Tang’s will be growing their team by bringing on two new employees.
Since opening in Manassas in 1999, Tang’s has earned a glowing reputation for exceptional bridal services and quality alterations. That reputation, alongside careful planning from owners Xiao-Yin (Tang) Byrom and Kenny Loveless, has helped draw in clients from across the DC metro area and enabled the business to expand three times now in the City.
“We’ve been a part of this amazing business community for over 20 years,” say owners Byrom and Loveless. “Our excellent staff and our loyal customers have enabled us to grow. Tang’s has grown substantially along with the City and we’re very thankful for the partnerships with the City and resources that have helped along the way.”
