Businesses Brace To Accommodate Massive Prom Rush

As the end of the school year approaches, so does prom, which means local business are bracing for a big boom.

Most high schools in eastern Idaho are planning to have their prom on May 12th. Thousands of students will be dining out that night.

The most important part of prom, however, is looking sharp. Formalwear retailers, including Hart’s Tux & Gowns in Idaho Falls, are vowing to not turn any teens away, which could prove to be a difficult task.

?We just keep buying more and more tuxedos so that we can handle the large quantity of kids. So, when they all come in on the same night, the kids who get there first get the first pick,? said Alex Hart, owner of Hart?s. ?If we need to buy more inventory, overnight tuxedos — whatever we need to do — we’re going to make sure every kid gets what they need.?

Hart says he?s expecting this prom season to be his biggest ever, estimating he?ll rent out about 800 tuxedos that weekend.

He also plans on putting more of their dresses on clearance as the big day draws closer.
