The family-owned department store retailer announced plans to open a two-level, 122,000-sq.-ft. store at The Village of Rochester Hills in Rochester Hills, Mich. Scheduled to open fall 2020, it will be Von Maur’s fourth location in Michigan, and feature the company's signature brick façade and residential ambiance, complete with antiques, original artwork, open-floor plan and music from a grand piano.
