Nearly a year ago at the Von Maur grand opening at North Point Mall, I snapped a few candid shots of Cinderella hanging out with Batman. Captain America was among the characters present at the Von Maur grand opening at Perimeter Mall today.
Once again, awesome ladies lounges have returned to Perimeter Mall. It’s impressive how quickly Von Maur was able to re-do the inside of the former Bloomingdale’s space. It has a similar layout to the North Point location, but bigger. Strangely, though, I prefer the mise-en-scene of the latter…probably because its mall-interior entrance is constructed to look like the an exterior (brick wall). The North Point Von Maur’s junior section is its own space. The Perimeter Mall Von Maur’s various retail sections flow into each other.
Von Maur should take the space of the store next to Anthropologie and turn it into a coffee shop or cafe. Nordstrom’s has both; Starbucks by the food court gets very crowded very quickly; and Macy’s sits right behind a Barnie’s Coffee Shop.
Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo was also at the grand opening. She is tiny.
