Von Maur Department Store plans to open second location in Minnesota

RBR Staff Writer Published 03 March 2016

Von Maur Department Store is planning to open a 140,000-square-foot store at the Rosedale Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. Scheduled to open Fall 2018, the store will be the company's second location in Minnesota.

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 Toms, Kate Spade, Alex & Ani, Hunter, Vineyard Vines, and Peter Millar, among many others.

Beginning in Spring 2017, new construction of the two-level Von Maur store will feature the Company's signature exterior brick façade, which includes arching entryways accented by copper cupolas. Inside, open expansive floor plans will accentuate Von Maur's residential ambiance, complete with antiques, original artwork and music from the store's grand piano. Additionally, a parking deck around the store will be constructed to accommodate an increase in shoppers. It is expected that the store will eventually employ 200 associates - the majority of which will be full-time.

"As one of the top-ranked regional malls in the market, Rosedale Center is a great location for us to expand our brand in Minnesota," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur. "Its central location allows shoppers from the Twin Cities and beyond to have access to the high-end fashion and signature customer service Von Maur offers. We look forward to growing in the market and continuing to be a premiere shopping destination in the Twin Cities for years to come."

"The addition of Von Maur coupled with Rosedale's full interior common area renovation will secure the mall's position as a top retail destination in the Twin Cities," said Bill Moston, Senior Vice President, National Retail Development of JLL. "We appreciate the City of Roseville's support of this project and look forward to breaking ground shortly."

Today's announcement also continues to build upon the family-owned Company's targeted national growth strategy, which includes plans to open its third location in Georgia this Fall, along with its first location in Wisconsin in Spring 2017.

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 accelerated internal advancement opportunities, above-market wages, excellent benefits and a positive, professional work environment.
