Hundreds of people made their way to the Galleria Mall, Saturday, in Hoover to experience the grand opening of the 29th Von Maur Department Store.

More than 150 curious shoppers were lined up this morning, waiting for the doors to open.

Shoppers were given chocolates and roses and were serenaded by a live jazz band.

The store's owners are hoping to create a unique shopping experience.

"When we came down here we were impressed with the shopping center," President Jim Von Maur, said. "We could tell this is the dominant shopping center in the Birmingham, Alabama area and we couldn't get over the vibrant growth that we saw in Birmingham. It's a great community. It's growing and we felt it was under-served."

Von Maur says the company will continue to expand across the country.
