DAVENPORT, Iowa, Oct. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Von Maur Department Stores opened a new store today at Woodland Mall in Kentwood, Mich. The 90,000-square-foot store is the Company’s third location in Michigan.

Known for its outstanding selection of brand name and specialty apparel, shoes, accessories and gifts, the store features products from leading brands such as Eileen Fisher, Vineyard Vines, Free People, and Kendra Scott, among many others. Von Maur is also widely-regarded for its superior customer service, including an interest-free charge card, accommodating return policy, free gift wrapping and free shipping services.

Today’s opening continues to build upon the momentum of the family-owned Company’s targeted national growth strategy.
