Known for its outstanding selection of brand name and specialty apparel, shoes, accessories and gifts, the new store features products from leading brands such as Eileen Fisher, Free People, Coach, Joe's Jeans and Tommy Bahama, among many others. Anchoring the mall's Northwest wing, the three level Von Maur store features the Company's signature residential ambiance, complete with antiques, original artwork, open-floor plan and music from the store's grand piano, and is expected to employ 275-325 associates – the majority of which will be full-time.

Commencing with a ribbon cutting ceremony today at 9:45 a.m. EST, the grand opening will feature events throughout the day, including guest appearances by Miss USA Oliva Culpo on behalf of Chinese Laundry Shoes and fashion industry veteran Daniel Dolce, founder of men's fashion label Daniel Dolce Italy. Additionally, Von Maur will offer live music, children's entertainment and in-store giveaways, including two $1,000 shopping sprees.

"We're excited to open our newest location in Georgia at Perimeter Mall and are thrilled with the reception we've received since we broke into the market last year," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur. "It is clear that shoppers in Atlanta have a deep desire for the quality, style, selection and service specifically offered by Von Maur, and we look forward to continuing to provide them with a unique experience every time they step foot in our stores."

Today's opening also marks the premier of Von Maur's newly redesigned Lingerie Department. Conceived through direct customer feedback, the department evokes a more enhanced shopping experience and better showcases the variety of selections, including stylish intimate apparel, as well as price points the Company has to offer.
