Signs went up today at Beall’s store in the Marimac Shopping Center announcing a “store closing sale”. Store personnel confirmed that the store will close but will reopen under the Gordmans banner.
Gordman’s is an off-price retailer that sellS a wide variety of merchandise including clothing and shoes at lower prices than most department stores.
Stage Stores, which owns the Beall’s line announced earlier this year that it planned to convert 70 to 80 of its stores to Gordmans.
No time frame was available for the changeover, however staff indicated that there will be a two-week period between the closing of Beall’s and the opening of Gordmans.
