Now Open: Von Maur at North Point

21 Nov

Well, better late than never, right? Von Maur opened in Atlanta! And we were there! And we’re just now posting about it!

The store is beautiful, boasting lots of square footage for men, women, children and juniors. You’ll find the men’s and juniors departments on the first floor, with the cosmetics, a little bit of women’s sportswear and large shoe section that features a separate room for clearance shoes (don’t miss it!) Upstairs, find the rest of the women’s department, the children’s section, handbags (odd that they’re not on the first floor) and more. Don’t miss: the women’s lounge on the second floor. This is where you’ll want to take a break and rest your feet during the holiday shopping marathons.

Von Maur. Now Open at North Point Mall, in the Dillard’s wing.

It’s going to happen: Von Maur will open its first Atlanta store at North Point on November 5, despite talk that the store might not be finished in time for the holiday season. The midrange department store will bring jobs as well as a new shopping experience to the area. Bonus incentive to shop there: free gift wrapping for the holiday season.

Get ready, Atlanta: Henri Bendel has set an official opening date for its Lenox location, and they are ready to kick it all off with a whole weekend full of delights. Doors officially open to the public on Friday, September 30, with complimentary champagne from 6pm to 9pm. Stop by Saturday and you’ll get a free striped HB tote with any $150+ purchase. On Sunday, they’re offering a “NYC-style brunch” from noon to 2pm, featuring bagels, coffee and virgin bloody marys. Plus they’ll be giving away 20% off cards all weekend.

For those not savvy, Henri Bendel is a 5th Avenue department store with over 100 years of history. Now the company offers mostly fun, high-end accessories, beauty items, scarves, keychains, pet supplies and more–many bedecked with their famous brown-and-white stripe pattern–which aren’t available in other stores. This is a great place to pick up gifts for moms, daughters, girlfriends, etc. (Hey, the holidays really will be here before you know it.)

Coming Soon: Von Maur at North Point

12 Sep

The dead space at the Dillard’s end of North Point Mall is about to get exciting again. The former Lord & Taylor/Belk space is becoming a Von Maur, which marks the first Atlanta location for the midwestern department store chain (and the first Southern location, unless you count Louisville). The store was originally slated to open in November 2011, although whether it manages to pull that off remains to be seen (though the store does have job postings online for fall 2011). But the AJC reports that the new store brings 230 jobs to the area, nevertheless. The store is compared to a Nordstrom, with mid- to -high-end brands in stock, but not quite the luxury market like a Saks or Neiman Marcus. The retail chain boasts free shipping and free gift-wrapping year-round, setting it apart from competition at the start, plus a live pianist to entertain customers while they shop. If the Alpharetta location is successful, we can expect two more stores to open in the Atlanta area, plus other expansions into nearby states.

Welcome, y’all.

Von Maur. Located at North Point Mall. Opening November 2011.
