Von Maur’s expanding footprint


Von Maur Department Store is doubling down in Minnesota.

The family-owned company will open a 140,000-sq.-ft. store at the Rosedale Center in St. Paul. Scheduled to open fall 2018, the store will be the retailer’s second location in Minnesota. Construction is due to begin in spring 2017.

The two-level store will feature Von Maur’s signature exterior brick façade, which includes arching entryways accented by copper cupolas. Inside, open expansive floor plans will accentuate Von Maur's residential ambiance, complete with antiques, original artwork and music from the store's grand piano.

"As one of the top-ranked regional malls in the market, Rosedale Center is a great location for us to expand our brand in Minnesota," said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur, which operates 30 stores in 14 states. "Its central location allows shoppers from the Twin Cities and beyond to have access to the high-end fashion and signature customer service Von Maur offers.”

In addition to the Rosedale location, Von Maur’s national growth strategy includes plans to open its third location in Georgia this fall, along with its first location in Wisconsin in spring 2017.
