Starbucks to open on Disney properties

BY Marianne Wilson

Seattle — Starbucks Coffee Co. has announced a partnership to open a store inside each of the six Disney properties in California and Florida.

The first will open this summer, at Disneyland California Adventure in Anaheim, Calif. Starbucks will be located in the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Café on Buena Vista Street, which is designed to transport patrons to 1920s Los Angeles. The store’s location plays off the Spanish/Mexican architecture of the period, and Starbucks baristas will wear 1920s-inspired attire.

The additional stores are planned for Disneyland Park and Walt Disney World Resort, including locations at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Von Maur expanding Dry Goods format

BY Marianne Wilson

Davenport, Iowa — Von Maur Inc. will expand its women’s specialty store concept, Dry Goods, with the opening of a 4,500-sq.-ft. location this fall at Orland Square Mall in Orland Park, Ill. The store will be the specialty store chain’s third location in the Greater Chicagoland area and the seventh Dry Goods store overall.

The new Dry Goods will feature leading brands such as Free People, Hudson, Jessica Simpson, Joe’s Jeans and Silver, among others. The store’s decor will reflect the chain’s vintage, turn-of-the-century aesthetic.

The Dry Goods format is being targeted for markets in which Von Maur has yet to establish a presence. The specialty chain also announced plans to open its first Minnesota location in Roseville, Minn., in May.

"The success and volume of business at our current Chicagoland locations has been tremendous, leaving us confident that our newest location in Orland Park will yield similar results," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur.

Von Maur opened the first Dry Goods in October 2010 in Aurora, Ill. The name and design of the specialty store were inspired by Von Maur’s heritage as a dry goods store, dating back to 1872 in downtown Davenport, Iowa.

While future locations will be primarily concentrated in Midwest-based shopping centers, Von Maur’s goal is to expand the concept beyond the Midwest as part of a national expansion initiative.
