The Davenport-Iowa-based store has been compared to Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.

The store has spread over the Midwest but has made a push into the south.The store has another location, nearby Sandy Springs at North Point Mall in Alpharetta. Von Maur is known in the retail business for its no-interest credit card, free shipping and gift wrapping.

Enough of the business.

Check the websites for the specifics, but there are a lot of events going on and the above is a summary. For instance they will have a magician roaming the store, as well as face painters and balloon artists to keep kids entertained.

Designer Daniel Dolce will also be in the store. There's a Spanx styling event - you get the picture. Again, you can see all the time for the events - and there are many more than listed here - at their website.
