Shopping Tips

  • Search the directory: Looking for a specific style or store? Contact prom dress stores directly. Contact information for prom dress stores in Santee Alley can be found here.
  • Parking: We recommend parking in a private parking lot. Most parking lots are cash only and rates can vary from $5-15. Please note, all lots are independently owned and operated, and their hours of operation might vary.
  • Return Policies: In general, prom dress stores in the area tend to have a “final sale” or very short return policy. We highly recommend trying on the dress before making a purchase and taking a second to check seams and embellishment details.
  • Alterations: Most stores will either offer alterations on site or can recommend a tailor nearby.
  • Pricing: Dress prices vary widely depending on the style of dress. Most dresses are in the $100-300 price range. Heavily beaded dresses will be the most expensive, while simpler designs will be on the lower end.
  • Some stores offer discounts for group purchases. Bring your friends and ask the store if they’ll give a discount if you all buy from the same shop. It never hurts to ask.
