It's a first, not only for our area, but the entire northeast. Von Maur at Eastview Mall held its grand opening celebration Saturday.
The high-end department store, based in Iowa, moved into the spot once occupied by the Bon-Ton.
News10NBC stopped in for a look at the store's first day here in our area. The 140-thousand square foot store features clothing and accessories for the whole family.
You'll find special touches throughout the store, like a fireplace and a professional piano player serenading shoppers.
News10NBC is told the store will eventually employ 160 people, most of them, full-time.
