Born in 1915 out of a small retail store at the corner of 16th and Chicago in Omaha, Nebraska, Gordmans is proud to celebrate more than 100 years in business. Fashion trends may come and go, but Gordmans has thrived knowing that low-cost, high-quality apparel and décor are always on-trend.
We’ve delivered high-quality merchandise at great values for 100 years. Not many companies come close to fulfilling that promise, or lasting that long,” said Andy Hall, president and chief executive officer. “Looking toward the future, we will continue to build our national brand portfolio and further enhance the guest experience as Gordmans continues to grow by adding stores and ecommerce channels.”
Today, Gordmans operates 102 stores in 22 states, along with an online shopping site that allows guests to shop anytime, anywhere.
Richman Gordman prospered, leading to progressively faster expansion. Over several decades, the company added stores in Omaha and elsewhere in Nebraska, along with communities in Iowa and Kansas. Centralized checkouts, shopping carts, self-service shoe departments and racetrack-shopping configurations for easier store navigation were all introduced by Dan.
“We’ve proved that saving money never goes out of style,” said Mr. Hall. “And I think it’s safe to say that delighting guests with the latest fashion trends in name brand apparel and home décor at incredible values is at the foundation of this [100th anniversary] impressive milestone. Our 5,300 associates are passionate about delivering value, every day.”
