Von Maur Grand Opening at The Village of Rochester Hills on Saturday, March 19th, 2022

Ever since Carson’s closed in 2018, the surrounding community has speculated on what could replace the former two-story Parisian and then Carson’s space. Would it be a Macy’s, Kohl’s, Best Buy, perhaps even a movie theater?

In October of 2019, some two-and-half years ago, news came from Robert B. Aikens & Associates, developer of the Village of Rochester Hills, that a new Von Maur would occupy the former Carson’s space at 400 N Adams Rd in Rochester Hills.

Early expectations were set for a Fall 2020 opening, however the unexpected arrival of a global pandemic along with supply chain challenges pushed the Grand Opening to March 2022.

Many believe the experience will be worth the wait. "We are confident that Von Maur’s exciting fashion environment and unparalleled shopping experience will resonate with the Village shopper," Bruce Aikens, vice chairman of the development firm, said in a statement.

Von Maur describes themselves as follows…

“The strength of the Von Maur brand lies in our enjoyable and unique shopping experience. The backbone of this experience is our wide selection of brand-name merchandise, open and attractive store design, amenities that enhance the customer experience and our commitment to excellent customer service.”

Von Maur is celebrating their 150th year in business. Von Maur opened its first store in Davenport, Iowa in 1872. The Village of Rochester Hills store will be Von Maur’s 36th store across 15 states, with Davenport remaining the company headquarters. This will be the fourth Michigan location, joining Briarwood Mall in Ann Arbor, Laurel Park Place in Livonia, and Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids. With four stores in Michigan, the only states with more Von Maur stores are Illinois with seven and Iowa with five.

In the late 1800's, CJ von Maur established the "Boston Store" in Davenport, IA
