Von Maur, the department store chain, is slated to open a juniors-only specialty chain store in the near future. "We are working on the name, the design and the merchandising concept," Von Maur merchant Lindsay Caltagirone told WWD. "We have a really strong junior business within our stores and just think we can do well in that category with a specialty store." Geared for 15-25 year old mall-shoppers, the store is planned for the end of the year. [WWD]
