Guilderland, NY: Dry Goods USA, a subsidiary of Von Maur Department Store, plans to open 11 new store locations in 2023, including one at Crossgates this fall. The junior women’s fashion retailer will open in a 3,557 sq. ft. location on the upper level of the shopping center in the Macy’s wing. Dry Goods has an ever-changing selection of today’s newest fashions. From clothing to jewelry to accessories, Dry Goods has everything you’ll need to pull together your latest look. Dry Goods features an interior design that has a vintage-store feel.
“We are excited by the success of Dry Goods as we continue to expand our footprint and introduce the brand to new fashion-forward shoppers seeking the latest on-trend clothing and accessories,” said Melody Wright, COO of Von Maur, the family-owned, 150-year-old parent company of Dry Goods. “Our ever-changing mix offers new, fresh takes that allow our shoppers to create their own individual look at a reasonable price.”
Located in a small, rented storefront in downtown Davenport, Iowa, the first Von Maur Dry Goods store was founded back in 1872. In 2010, Von Maur returned to its roots by opening the first Dry Goods store in Aurora, Illinois.
“The Dry Goods brand was created to bring our tradition of customer service to a new generation of younger, fashion-forward customers,” said Lindsay Caltagirone, VP of stores for Dry Goods.
