In a surprise move, Gordmans has announced that a year after declaring bankruptcy, they are reopening a store in Omaha.
Gordmans filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year because of sluggish sales, but now the stores have a new owner and Gordmans plans to once again open its doors in Omaha. Stores in Council Bluffs and Fremont remained open after the bankruptcy.
A former Gordmans store location will soon be home to a new Gordmans store. Inside the building, work is being done to prepare the West Grayhawk Shopping Center store to once again sell merchandise under the Gordmans name.
A statement from the company reads, in part:
“Stage Stores is delighted to open a Gordmans store based on the retail chain’s heritage of being founded in Omaha more than 100 years ago.
Officials hope to have all of this ready in time for the Christmas shopping season with the store slated to open on November 1st.
A store hiring event is set for September 17th and 18th from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM at 14933 Evans Plaza in the West Grayhawk Shopping Center.
