cheap uggs online outlet Quail Springs’ Von Maur Grand Opening set for Oct
Oklahoma City’s newest shopping experience is opening its doors today. in the east end of the Quail Springs Shopping Center on Memorial Road.
Von Maur offers shopping as an experience, and one that will entice shoppers to keep coming back.
If the moderately priced upscale fashions and accessories are not enough to draw shoppers out, then perhaps the grand piano being played by one of four pianists on staff, or the antique furniture displayed throughout the store (no it is not for sale, only for looking at) or flat screen televisions in the men’s shoe department will be the catalyst to draw shoppers into the newly opened department store. Von Maur has completely remodeled the space once used by Sears on the east end of the mall.
Store manager Jessica Stetler is a transplant from Michigan who came to Oklahoma by way of New York where she opened the company’s 29th store.
The department store chain has stores located primarily in the Midwestern United States and sells mid priced brand name apparel, accessories, cosmetics, gifts, jewelry and shoes. Stores also feature minimal signage and plush seating throughout. Regionally, it competes on the same level as Dillard’s, Lord Taylor and Macy’s.
“Our company started in 1872 in Iowa as a dry goods store, and our stores are primarily based in the Midwest,” Stetler said, “Oklahoma City is our 30th store we will have opened, and its open concept covers 150,000 square feet.”
Service will be provided throughout the store by a staff of 150 associates working in each of the departments.
“Our staff will be knowledgeable and able to help our shoppers with their needs,” Stetler said. “Shoppers can find a wide range of wearables including shoes, handbags and accessories.”
Laura Mercier among other brands can be found at the cosmetic counter, while Ugg, Hunter, Kate Spade and Cole Haan are the tip of the iceberg in the shoe department. The ever popular Ralph Lauren and Eileen Fisher brands are joined by Ming Wang, Ted Baker, Hudson and French Connection in the women’s section, while the men can shop for Vineyard Vines and Joules to round out their wardrobes.
“We also have a section of dresses for women to chose from,” Stetler said.
The dresses range from every day casual to office attire to formal wear. The store also has coats, hats, active wear and bathing suits are available year round. University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University fans can find clothing items to wear.
Camouflage patterns adorn handbags by Michael Kors and Furla, Longchamp and Rebecca Met can be found on the open counters.
Children’s’ clothing ranges from infants through size 20 for boys and 16 for girls.
In the gift department, shoppers can find gourmet foods and candies as well as home dcor items to give or keep for their own in a wide variety of price ranges. Seasonal items are also in this area.
Stetler said permanent mark downs are just that, permanent. And there is a room dedicated to shoe clearance.
Just when shoppers might think it can’t get any better, four staff members are dedicated to making alterations.
“Alterations are in store and the cost depends on the complexity of the alteration being made,” Stetler said.
For mothers shopping in the children’s area, there is an interactive tree, play table and a television with child appropriate viewing.
“Our women’s lounge is like walking into a home and we have a changing area for moms to change their baby’s diaper and a rocking chair for nursing moms,” Stetler said.
“We want to provide an atmosphere or an environment for our customers that will make shopping an experience. We want them to feel comfortable while they are in the store shopping, and we invite them to sit down and listen as one of our four staff pianists play. There will be live or recorded piano music playing while the store is open throughout the day,” Stetler said.
Hallmarks of Von Maur services are free gift wrapping, no interest bearing credit card accounts, free shipping (in store and online) and free online returns.
Free gift wrap is offered year round, and 30 extra gift wrappers will be hired during the holidays.
“Our charge cards are unique and special,” Stetler said. “They are free with no interest and no fees of any kind at all. There is no other card like it in the country.
