Von MaurIowa-based Von Maur Department Stores has announced plans to open a 140,000-square-foot store at the Rosedale Center in St. Paul, Minnesota in fall 2018. Construction will begin in spring 2017.

The two-level Von Maur store will feature the company’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. Among the men’s brands to be featured will be Vineyard Vines and Peter Millar.

“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. “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. We look forward to growing in the market and continuing to be a premiere shopping destination in the Twin Cities for years to come.”

“The addition of Von Maur coupled with Rosedale’s full interior common area renovation will secure the mall’s position as a top retail destination in the Twin Cities,” said Bill Moston, svp of National Retail Development of JLL. “We appreciate the City of Roseville’s support of this project and look forward to breaking ground shortly.”

Von Maur, which is continuing its national growth strategy, currently operates 30 stores in 14 states, and is planning additional stores in Georgia and Wisconsin. It also operates a 120,000-square-foot e-commerce facility.
