And Just Like That, Perimeter Mall Announces Bloomingdale's Replacement. What's a Von Maur?

New, 2 comments

Well, that didn't take long. News of the replacement for the soon-to-be-closed Bloomingdale's at Perimeter Mall has been announced and it is.... Von Maur Department Store. "Von Who?," you say. The announcement sent us scrambling to the Internets too. Van Maur is a high-end department store based out of Iowa. We're not trying to be haughty here, but high-end fashion isn't the first thing that comes to our minds when you think of Iowa. In fact, the first things that come to CA's mind are hogs, corn fields, John Deere, one house worth $5.9 million, a college roommate from Davenport known for drunken antics (nicknamed "Iowa"), and every four years, a caucus. So in retrospect, why not add a luxury department chain to the mix. Congrats to General Growth Properties on the quick score- big boxes aren't easy to fill.
