Von Maur plans to open its 29th store at Riverchase Galleria Mall in Hoover, Ala., on Nov. 2. Located just outside of Birmingham, Ala., the three-level, 185,000-sq.-ft. store will be the company's first location in Alabama as well as one of the retailer’s largest stores in the country.
Located at the mall's former Macy's location, the store underwent a full reconstruction and now the exterior is decked out in Von Maur's signature exterior brick facade with arching entryways. Inside, open expansive floor plans accentuate Von Maur's residential ambiance, complete with antiques, original artwork and music from the store's grand piano. New department design in shoes, juniors, handbags and lingerie add to the shopping experience. Other features include an interactive, life-size tree in the children's department and an antique pub, motorcycle and multiple televisions will in the men's areas.
"We're excited to continue growing the Von Maur brand throughout the Southeast and to open our first Alabama location at the number one shopping location in the state," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur. "Riverchase Galleria Mall's excellent mix of retailers, hotel accommodations and business offices is a great draw within the region, and we look forward to introducing shoppers to the style, service and experience our loyal customers across the country have come to know and love."
