Iowa-based department store chain Von Maur has plans to launch a fast-fashion concept this fall. Dry Goods will sell trendy apparel and accessories in an old-fashioned setting that harks back to the Midwestern retailer's beginnings. Von Maur, which operates about 24 department stores, scrapped plans to expand its more traditional big-store base after the economy tanked and now sees fast-fashion as its future, the Chicago Tribune reports.
