Well, the week of Summit High School's prom is upon us, and that means it's getting down to the wire for ordering your tuxedo! Of course everyone was on spring break last week, so don't worry, you're not alone if you just suddenly realized prom was less than a week away. And there's still time--just not much! Feel free to give us a call to ask questions, but here's some basic info about last-minute prom rentals:
Q. Is it too late to rent a tuxedo for prom?
A. No, it's not too late until Friday at 2 pm, but there are two important things to keep in mind: Shipping costs go up with each passing day, and availability is limited so you might not get your first choice. Also be aware that the ordering process can take a while as we try to secure your first, second, third, fourth, etc. choice until we find something that will work.
Q. Uh oh, I'm reading this AFTER Friday at 2 pm. Is there anything you can do?
A. Maybe. No promises, but call us at 970-668-5732 or stop by at 299 Main Street in Frisco, and we'll see if there is any way we can help.
Q. How much does it cost to rent an outfit?
A. The cost of a complete outfit ranges from around $100 to $140, pre-tax. There's also a $7 accidental damage waiver added to each rental. Shoes cost $25 to rent. For prom we are doing a free upgrade to microfiber shirts, which come in black, white, ivory, light blue or pink, and are available in fitted or regular styles. We also provide a pocket square at no cost. For a price list of our regular prices click here and scroll down.
At this point in the game, there will also be additional shipping charges, ranging from $20 to $70. These charges increase each day, so the sooner you can get in here, the better.
Q. So how does the process work?
A. First, we do measurements and choose styles and colors. Then, while you're still in the shop, we place the order, trying for your first choice, then if it isn't available, we keep trying different options until we are able to reserve an outfit.
Q. Do I pay now or later?
A. When you place the order we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit that goes towards the cost of the tux. The balance is due when you pick it up.
Q. What are your hours?
A. During prom week we are open from 10-6 every day, and often we end up staying later. On Tuesday, April 24 I am planning to stay late in order to accommodate those with after school commitments, but please call to let me know if you'd like to come in after 6 so I will know to wait for you!
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to call us at 970-668-5732.
