Terry Costa isn’t letting the fact that it’s a small business stop it from working to put dreams within reach

Dallas — May 10, 2023 — National Small Business week  is a tradition first started by President John F. Kennedy in 1963 to recognize the hard work small businesses do to make critical contributions to the U.S. economy and encourage entrepreneurs across the country. This year National Small Business Week was April 30 – May 6.  It served as a great reminder to support locally owned businesses in your area and help them continue to have a critical impact. That’s why if you’re looking for a dress or pantsuit for any special occasion, Terry Costa is inviting you to stop by and make dreams come true. 

Terry Costa is a small, locally owned business in Dallas, Texas located at 12817 Preston Road, Suite 138. Although small, Terry Costa has been serving the DFW metroplex  and neighboring states for over 30 years. It offers the widest selection of high-quality prom, homecoming, and pageant dresses in Texas. With a knowledgeable and fashion-loving team, Terry Costa is dedicated to putting dreams within reach. Terry Costa prides itself on keeping its promises to guests, whether that means answering phones and serving customers to the best of their ability throughout Covid, curbside deliveries, or close contact with designers to ensure the delivery of a dress. They’ve persevered through times of economic recession, pandemics, and natural disasters to continue to serve their clients and provide some of the best service possible. 

“We take our job as a special occasion retailer very seriously,” Terry Costa Owner and CEO Tina Loyd said. “We work closely with our vendors so we can give each client an experience tailored for them. At Terry Costa, every client is valued and not another number on a spreadsheet.”

When Alfred Angelo closed in 2017 without notice, Terry Costa cared for frantic brides who never got the dresses that they paid for. A day after filing for bankruptcy, the bridal company closed down, locking its doors without notice to the public or its customers and leaving countless brides without a dress. Every neglected bride that turned to Terry Costa in distress received care and a complete Terry Costa experience as the Terry Costa team worked tirelessly to save the day and find them their perfect dress. Bankruptcies and businesses shutting down don’t just affect the customers, they take away from people’s livelihood. Recently, one the largest national bridal retailers David’s Bridal declared bankruptcy and announced plans to lay off more than 9,000 employees.

As a small business, every employee is vital to success, which is why they go the extra mile to earn your business. Since 1995, more than half of the U.S. jobs are made by small businesses. According to Forbes, small businesses employ over 61.7 million workers, 46.4% of all US employees. Small businesses like Terry Costa don’t have the luxury of large layoffs, which is why they take extra care to avoid them. Every Terry Costa employee is eager and dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized customer service. Additionally, small businesses give back to the community. Terry Costa hosts annual modeling competitions free of charge for the public, sponsors local schools and has offered interns a trip to New York Fashion Week as a reward for their hard work. At Terry Costa employees and customers are people whose dreams are within reach.

Terry Costa is proud to be a small business.   It has been the go-to Bridal and Prom shop for the DFW area for over 37 years, and plans to continue to serve the area for many years to come. It offers the widest selection of high-quality prom, homecoming, and pageant dresses in Texas. With a knowledgeable and fashion-loving team, Terry Costa is dedicated to working with each customer to bring their vision to life. New and recurring guests don’t need an appointment to get an unforgettable Terry Costa experience because walk-ins are always welcome. Terry Costa also has a website for those who can’t make it to the store.
