BY Marianne Wilson

Davenport, Iowa — Von Maur Department Store has opened its first store in the state of Alabama, at Riverchase Galleria in Hoover. The 185,000-sq.-ft. store is also one of the company’s largest locations to date.

"After opening our first Southeastern location two years ago, we couldn’t be more excited to continue building on our success in the region with the addition of our first Alabama location at Riverchase Galleria," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur."

Located at the mall’s former Macy’s location, the store underwent a full reconstruction and now the exterior boasts 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.

An interactive, life-sized tree in children’s is designed to entertain Von Maur’s youngest shoppers while an antique pub display piece, motorcycle and multiple televisions offer enjoyment in the men’s areas.
