Upscale department store takes 234,00-square-foot space at Dunwoody Mall.
The Bloomingdale’s at Perimeter Mall, scheduled to close early Spring, already has a replacement.
General Growth Properties (GGP), owner of the Dunwoody Mall, announced in a press release Thursday, Von Maur department store will take the soon-to-be vacant Bloomingdale’s space. It was just Wednesday that Bloomingdale’s notified its 128 employees that it would be closing there.
This will be the second Von Maur in the area. The other is in Alpharetta at North Point Mall (opened late 2011).
“Von Maur combines exceptional customer service with brand-name and high-quality merchandise in an aesthetically pleasing environment to create a shopping experience like no other,” said Richard Pesin, executive vice president of anchors and development for General Growth Properties, Inc.
“Adding Von Maur to the retail line-up of Perimeter Mall further solidifies Perimeter Mall as a premier shopping destination for all of Atlanta.”
Von Maur will join Apple, Nordstrom, Michael Kors, Sur La Table, and Forever 21 among others at Perimeter Mall and is projected to open in fall 2012.
