Exploring Gordmans

June 26th, 2011
by Allison Kaplan

Finally got over to Gordmans, the Omaha-based discount chain that recently opened two Twin Cities locations, in Woodbury and Burnsville. It struck me as a jazzed-up cross between Bed, Bath & Beyond and Marshalls. I was greeted by a display of outdoor tableware, and right behind that was a considerable section of Twins apparel. Every product, from candy bars to coats to comforters has two prices: “Theirs” and “Ours” with a promise of savings “up to 60 percent off.” The apparel is brand name; I recognized more of the brands in men’s, like Union Bay and Izod. The store does a great job of appealing to children and teens, not just with clothes, but buckets of inexpensive bracelets and lip gloss, toys and a TV seating area. The store just keeps going: shoes, cards, pillows, small furnishings, Kitchen Aid appliances. I doubt Gordmans is going to draw from the west metro, but if you’re in the area, it is worth adding to your shopping rounds, especially when on the hunt for home accessories and fashions for kids and teens. Even if you don’t find what you went for, you’ll likely come out with margarita mix, a wrought iron bench or some other random item you hadn’t realized you needed.

    After reading your recommendation I took a trip out to Gordman’s. The prices are low, very low. They have a huge plus size section which is rare. I looked at shoes, clothing, jewelry and lingerie and my conclusion is that it is some of the worst merchandise I’ve ever seen. I would liken it to trash. If you want low prices on good clothing or shoes go to TJ Max, Marshall’s or Nordstrom’s Rack.

    I know what a nice person you are Ali, maybe that’s why you were so kind.
