Local bridal shop is set back by coronavirus outbreak in China

ST. CHARLES, Minn. (FOX 47) -- The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has shut down cities in China and caused thousands of infections.

According to NBC News there have been more than 75,000 infections and more than 2,000 deaths. While the majority of cases have impacted China, local economies across the world are also being impacted by the outbreak.

A St. Charles bridal shop is seeing a set back caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus in China.

The White Rose Bridal Owner Sandy Anderson.

The White Rose Bridal owner Sandy Anderson said she works with factories in northern China. The set back was due to certain factories having fewer employees working because of fears of the virus spreading.

However, the factories have a system in place that works with business to ensure every bride gets her dress.

"We'll get 'em all in there. There's no need to panic or anything like that at the most they're gonna be three to four weeks late just because they wanted to make sure that the virus didn't get in their factories," Anderson said things are going back to normal.
