140-year-old Retailer Will Anchor Perimeter Mall in North Atlanta;
Move Continues Company’s Strategic Expansion Throughout the Southeast
DAVENPORT, Iowa – January 11, 2012 – Von Maur Department Stores announced today its plans to open a 234,000 square foot store at Atlanta’s Perimeter Mall in November 2012. The store will be the Company’s second location in Georgia and will become one of Von Maur’s largest stores in the country.
Known for its outstanding selection of brand name and specialty apparel, shoes, accessories and gifts, the store will feature products from leading brands such as Eileen Fisher, Free People, Coach, Joe’s Jeans and Tommy Bahama, among many others. Located at the mall’s former Bloomingdales’ location, the three level Von Maur store will be completely renovated in order to feature the Company’s signature residential ambiance, complete with antiques, original artwork, open-floor plan and music from the store’s grand piano. It is expected that the store will eventually employ 275-325 full-time and part-time associates, the majority of which will be full-time.
Today’s announcement marks the continuation of the family-owned Company’s strategic growth, targeting select markets within and beyond its traditional Midwestern roots. Von Maur opened its first Southeast location at North Point Mall in Alpharetta, Ga., in November 2011, and has announced plans to open additional stores in Hoover, Ala., and Victor, N.Y., in Fall 2013.
“We’re thrilled to become a part of the successful Perimeter Mall, and look forward to furthering our reputation as a retailer of choice for shoppers throughout Greater Atlanta and beyond,” said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur.
In addition to its selection of popular brands and merchandise, Von Maur is also widely-regarded for its superior customer service, including an interest-free charge card, liberal return policy, free gift wrapping and shipping services. The Company also offers its associates above-market wages, excellent benefits and a positive, professional work environment.
