Von Maur Dry Goods
Von Maur wanted to develop a new style of retail store offering a boutique feel and spotlighting a unique design concept that incorporates the appearance of the original 1872 Von Maur store. To achieve this type of store, Von Maur decided to renovate an existing tenant space into a new Dry Goods store at Apache Mall. The 3,500-square-foot space was to be transformed into the distinctive Dry Goods look during an 8-week construction timeline.
A collaborating effort between Shive-Hattery and Von Maur has evolved over the past 15 years through the design of several new and remodeled Von Maur department stores. The end result features an ornate storefront with a pair of glass double doors that invite shoppers into the space and offers an open view of the merchandise within the store. Once inside, the black and white mosaic tile floor, tin ceiling, schoolhouse-style light fixtures and tumbled face brick provide an old-fashioned feel, while surrounding hip and trendy merchandise.
Vibrant and unique spaces enable Von Maur to provide old-fashioned customer service to a new generation of customers.
