WHEDA financing will assist Eva’s Bridal Center

Eva’s Bridal Center in Oak Creek recently received a Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) Small Business Guarantee (SBG) on a loan totaling $100,000.
Proceeds from the loan will be put toward purchasing of software and inventory, funding site improvements, permanent working capital, and securing low-cost financing to support existing operations.
Eva’s Bridal Center is expecting to create three full time positions and retain nine more through the WHEDA SBG.
“Supporting Wisconsin’s small businesses is critical to putting our economy on the right track,” said WHEDA Executive Director Wyman Winston.  “WHEDA is committed to connecting Wisconsin’s small businesses to available financial resources, so they can create jobs.  We are delighted one of our many small business products can help Eva’s Bridal Center continue to thrive as they have done for the past 66 years.”
Eva’s first opened its doors as a custom made dress shop on Historic Mitchell Street on Milwaukee’s near south-side in January 1946. For decades, the popular shop was the largest destination for brides on Mitchell Street that featured a number of similar salons. Eva’s moved into its current location in Oak Creek near Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport in February 2005 and has more than doubled in size.
