A growing Davenport-based department store chain has decided to expand its presence further within the Iowa City area.

Dry Goods, a women’s clothing branch of Von Maur, will open a second Iowa location at Coralville’s Coral Ridge Mall in November.

The store, at around 3,000 square feet, will be slightly smaller than its other Iowa location, in West Des Moines’ Jordan Creek Town Center.

Coral Ridge general manager Monica Nadeau and Von Maur spokesman Brendan Griffith could not be reached for comment as of Monday evening.

That store, which opened Nov. 10, 2012, measures 4,000 square feet.

Just eight Dry Goods stores operate in the United States, in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

In contrast, its parent company, Von Maur, has 27 department stores in 11 states, including a new Coralville location at the Iowa River Landing, which opened in July.

Dry Goods sells women’s clothing, accessories and jewelry from the likes of Guess, Lush, Silver Jeans, and Moa Moa.

The company opened its first store in Aurora, Ill. In October 2010.
