Von Maur's Iowa Roots Run Deep

New Store at Iowa River Landing Continues 140 Year Track Record of Growth and Investment in Iowa

DAVENPORT, Iowa, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its successful growth strategy, which has seen the Company expand to 27 stores in 11 states, Von Maur is pleased to announce that its newest store, located at the Iowa River Landing in Coralville, Iowa, will open on July 27, 2013.

Conveniently located off Interstate 80 and 1st Avenue, the 80,000 square foot, free-standing brick store will feature Von Maur's signature exterior entrance and residential ambiance. Even more noticeable for customers will be the store's expansive open floor plan and larger departments which are designed to allow for greater product selection and more easily navigable aisles and common areas. Several new amenities will also be found, including a new women's lounge, a dedicated shoe clearance room, redesigned Juniors and Lingerie departments, larger dressing rooms and a fun, interactive, life-sized tree set to entertain the store's youngest visitors. Visitors to the grand opening on July 27th will enjoy live music, children's entertainment and in-store giveaways, including a drawing for a $1,000 shopping spree.

The store was constructed thanks to the skillful labor of 11 local Iowa contractors who employed more than 180 workers on site.  The new store will fully transition the 70 full-time and part-time associates currently working at the Company's Sycamore Mall location in Iowa City.

"Our goal has always been to exceed customers' expectations by providing a world class shopping experience," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur. "While our success over the years has led us to new markets and growth opportunities, Iowa has always been home.  It is a true privilege for me, our family and our associates to continue serving our loyal customers who have helped make us the company we are today."

Founded as a dry goods store in Davenport, Iowa in the late 1800s, Von Maur today enjoys generations of loyal customers drawn to the style, service and selection uniquely found at its stores. It operates five stores in the State and maintains its corporate headquarters in Davenport. The Company employs more than 940 Iowans and provides more than $32 million annually in wages to local employees. In 2010, the Company deepened its Iowa roots with the development of its e-commerce facility, also in Davenport.  That once 46,000 square foot facility has since been remodeled to include an additional 73,000 square feet of space.  Currently employing a full-time staff of 75 e-commerce professionals, Von Maur anticipates adding 50 net new e-commerce jobs over the next three years.  

In addition to its selection of popular brands and merchandise, such as Eileen Fisher, Free People, Coach, Joe's Jeans and Tommy Bahama, among many others, 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.
