FINDLAY — The 11th annual Don’t Stress Over the Dress will be March 8 through 10 at the Findlay Village Mall, 1800 Tiffin Ave., Findlay. The event, sponsored by The Shelly Company-Northwest Division and Chopin Hall, will be from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
It will include over 800 next-to-new dresses in all sizes and styles available at no charge. Shoes, jewelry and other prom-related items will be available as well.
