      Gordmans To Offer Something Unexpected at its East Peoria Store Grand Opening

      WHAT:
      Gordmans’ Grand Opening celebration at its new East Peoria store is March 21-24. Perfect for spring shopping, Gordmans offers an incredible selection of today’s latest brands, fashions and styles in apparel and home décor, big savings of up to 60% off department and specialty store prices and outstanding guest service. The Nebraska-based retailer is a fast-growing, publicly traded company with 86 stores in 48 markets and 18 states. With the opening of the new 50,000-square-foot store, Gordmans now has 12 locations in Illinois.

      During the Grand Opening weekend, guests will enjoy these special promotions:
      § instant mystery discount cards − get an extra 15%, 25%, 35% or 50% off any single item (savings are revealed at cashier checkout counter)
      § $10 Savings Cards with purchases of $50 or more (cards good for future purchases)
      § opportunity to register to win $25, $50 or $100 in Gordmans Gift Cards

      On Thursday, March 21, Gordmans will begin the Grand Opening festivities with a 9 a.m. ribbon cutting ceremony. CEO Jeff Gordman will present a check for $2,500 to East Peoria Elementary School District 86 to launch the retailer’s Partners in Education fundraising events. Partners in Education is a program through which businesses make additional educational resources available to local public school systems. Gordmans’ guests at the East Peoria store may join in by purchasing “helping hands” for $1 each. Every dollar raised will directly benefit East Peoria Elementary School District 86 and the schools it serves. The new Gordmans store has selected Lincoln Elementary School as its partner school. Since its involvement with Partners in Education, which began in 2000, Gordmans has contributed more than $1 million to public school systems in markets where Gordmans operates stores.
