Corey and Margaret McPherrin search for prom dresses at Peaches

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Heading into the heart of prom season, the big question for ladies all over the Chicago area is, "do I have the perfect dress?" Corey McPherrin and his daughter Margaret, a high school senior, paid a visit to one of the Midwest's top destinations for Prom dresses: Peaches.

If you can't find the perfect prom dress, you probably haven't discovered Peaches.

Tucked away in a strip mall on the Southwest side near Midway Airport, Peaches is a virtual prom dress paradise.

Employees at the store say on a weekend, Peaches typically sees 400 or 500 kids. They come from all over the Chicago area, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana and beyond - not what the owner imagined when she and her husband opened the business 30 years ago.

"We worked very hard. We were here seven days a week. We carry a lot of stock, we gambled a lot. We ordered a lot of stock and the kids like having a choice," she said.

If you think they have a lot of dresses in their show room, just take a look at the back room. It goes on forever. They have 20,000 dresses. If you can't find one, you probably won't find it.

Corey's daughter Margaret tried them on. They came to the conclusion it's tough to leave Peaches disappointed.
