Today's opening continues the family-owned company's strategic national expansion plans. After expanding beyond its Midwestern footprint in 2011 with the opening of its first Atlanta location, Von Maur has since grown in additional new states including New York, Alabama, Oklahoma, and will open its first Wisconsin location in spring 2017.
"Since we first opened our doors in Atlanta, this community has welcomed us with open arms and we're excited to provide shoppers another great location at the Mall of Georgia," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur. "This area is known for its high-end shopping and exceptional taste in clothing, and we're proud to be a part of this local culture and build upon our reputation of offering customers unmatched style, selection and service."
"We are very excited to once again partner with Von Maur," said David Contis, President, Simon Malls. "Their dedication to compelling merchandise and great customer service is always a big hit with our customers, and we expect another outstanding reception from our loyal Mall of Georgia shoppers."
Conveniently located off I-85 at one of the largest malls in the South, Von Maur will serve as an anchor tenant at the Mall of Georgia and cater to the active shoppers that visit the mall's vibrant retail and entertainment establishments. Located between Belk and Dick's Sporting Goods, the two-level Von Maur store received a complete renovation to feature the Company's signature residential ambiance, complete with antiques, original artwork, open-floor plan and music from the store's grand piano. Partnering with local subcontractors, Von Maur created approximately 230 jobs over the course of the renovation.
The Mall of Georgia store will eventually employ up to 200 associates; the majority of them will be full-time. Von Maur offers above-market wages, excellent benefits and a positive, professional work environment. Hours of operation are Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. EST, and Sunday, 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. ET.
