Von Maur Department Store announced today its plans to open a 90,000-square-foot store at West Acres Mall in Fargo, N.D. Scheduled to open in Spring 2025, this will be the first Von Maur location in North Dakota as the family-owned company’s national growth strategy continues to build.
The store is well-known for its impressive collection of brand name and specialty apparel, shoes, accessories, and gifts, featuring renowned brands like Bobbi Brown, Peter Millar, TravisMathew, Hammitt, Lilly Pulitzer, and Kendra Scott, among others. In addition to its exceptional product offerings, Von Maur is highly regarded for its exceptional customer service, offering an interest-free charge card, a flexible return policy, free gift wrapping, and complimentary shipping services. Thanks to the dedication of its staff, quality products, and loyal customers, Von Maur was recognized as the nation’s top department store by Newsweek’s “America’s Best Retailers 2022.” The company was also recently awarded the “2023 Retailer of the Year” by the Accessories Council, a testament to its unwavering commitment to customer service, carefully curated product selection, and reputation as an excellent industry partner.
“We look forward to opening the first Von Maur Department Store in North Dakota at such an exceptional location like West Acres Mall,” said Jim von Maur, president of Von Maur. “Fargo is a growing, vibrant metropolitan area in the Upper Midwest and we are excited to be a part of the region’s development. We look forward to introducing area shoppers to our wide selection of brand name merchandise and signature Von Maur service and becoming the shopping destination of choice for years to come.”
The upcoming Von Maur store at West Acres Mall in Fargo is set to commence construction in the summer of 2023. The store will boast a distinctly residential atmosphere, original art pieces, an open floor layout, and live piano music. With its prime location near Interstate 29 and Interstate 94, Von Maur will serve as a core tenant of the city’s retail and entertainment hub. The store is projected to provide employment to approximately 125 associates, with a majority of them working full-time. Von Maur is known for offering its employees competitive wages, exceptional benefits, and a supportive work environment.
Once open, this store will represent Von Maur’s second investment at West Acres Mall in Fargo. In 2018, the company opened its popular Dry Goods store, a youthful, feminine, contemporary women’s apparel, and accessories retailer. The success of Dry Goods gave the company additional confidence to continue investing in the area.
