Von Maur at Polaris Fashion Place, to open in fall 2005

Jul '05
Super-regional malls and community shopping centers Glimcher Realty Trust has completed the sale and transfers of the former Lord & Taylor site at Polaris Fashion Place to Von Maur Inc, an Iowa-based fashion specialty retailer. On May 16, 2005 Glimcher Polaris, LLC acquired the Lord & Taylor site from The May Department Stores Company.

The Von Maur store at Polaris Fashion Place will be the retailer's first store in Ohio. The Davenport, Iowa-based retailer is scheduled to occupy the former Lord & Taylor building consisting of approximately 140,000 square feet at Polaris Fashion Place where it will join Saks Fifth Avenue, The Great Indoors, Macy's, Kaufmann's, JCPenney and Sears as anchors. Von Maur at Polaris Fashion Place is scheduled to open in the fall of 2005. Polaris Fashion Place opened in October 2001.

"They are delighted to welcome Von Maur to Polaris Fashion Place," stated Michael P. Glimcher, President and Chief Executive Officer of Glimcher. "Adding their sophisticated merchandise mix to an already impressive retail lineup at Polaris Fashion Place, solidifies the Polaris area as Central Ohio's leading fashion destination, for residents and visitors alike."

Established over 130 years ago in Davenport, Iowa, Von Maur is a family- owned fashion department store whose current president is James D. von Maur, great-grandson of founder C.J. von Maur.

Von Maur makes an enjoyable and unique shopping experience through its wide selection of brand-name merchandise, its open and attractive store design, amenities that enhance customer convenience and comfort, and its commitment to customer service.
