OMAHA, Neb. – March 13, 2012: Gordmans, Inc., an apparel and home fashions retailer, brings
a better way to shop to Utah. The Nebraska-based company continues its rapid
expansion by opening its first Utah stores in Farmington and South Jordan.
Gordmans’ grand opening weekends begin March 23; however, shoppers can start
enjoying every day savings on March 15 when each of the 50,000-square-foot
stores opens: in South Jordan at The District, Bangerter &114th;
and in Farmington at Station Park, I-15 & Park Lane.
“We look forward to welcoming into our stores the Farmington
and South Jordan community members, and other Salt Lake City area residents.
Our mission is to delight our guests with big savings, big selection and fun,
friendly associates,” said Jeff Gordman,
president and CEO. “We believe that our fantastic values on high-fashion name
brand apparel, accessories and home decor at up to 60 percent off department
and specialty store prices every day has enabled our expansion into Utah and
across the U.S. Today’s savvy consumer is looking for value, and offering such
incredible deals on a wide array of fashion-oriented merchandise really seems
to resonate with our guests.”
Like Gordmans’ other stores, the Farmington and South Jordan
stores’ open and contemporary designs are further enhanced by a children’s
theater and sports-themed television viewing area. Guests will enjoy
outstanding customer service in well-organized, easy-to-shop stores.
Gordmans will present checks for $2500 each to the Jordan Education
Foundation and Davis Education Foundation on Friday, March 23 to launch
Partners in Education fundraising events in conjunction with the weekend’s
grand opening festivities. Partners in Education is a program for businesses,
government agencies, civic groups and faith organizations to make additional
educational resources available to local public school systems. Gordmans’ guests
at the new stores may participate in these events by purchasing “helping hands”
for $1 each from March 15 through April 1. Every dollar raised will directly
benefit the school districts. Since its involvement with Partners in Education,
which began in 2000, Gordmans has contributed over $978,000 to public school
systems in 17 states throughout the country.
“Partners in Education provides Gordmans and our guests a means to make
a difference in the lives of schoolchildren in the communities served by our
stores,” Gordman said. “The collaboration also is a great volunteer opportunity
for our associates.”
The new South Jordan Gordmans store has selected Midas Creek Elementary
School, and the Farmington Gordmans has chosen Eagle Bay Elementary School as their
