Christopher & Banks - Coralville

Christopher and BanksPutting Her First

When Gil Braun opened the first Braun’s Fashions in Minneapolis, Minn., in 1956, he opened it with “her” in mind: local women who were full of life and wisdom, confident in their beliefs and in search of styles that made them feel fabulous at a price they would love.

That spirit continued when Braun’s Fashions opened its first stores under the Christopher & Banks banner in 2000. The same year, the company introduced CJ Banks, opening 20 stores designed to meet the need for sizes 14-24 in the underserved women’s apparel market.

Today, Christopher & Banks operates more than 500 stores nationally, and still focuses on putting “her” first, providing our customers with style, value and service that help her look fabulous and feel amazing, every day and for life’s special moments. Missy, women’s and petite sizes are available in stores and online for our customers’ convenience.

Mike Thayer's Carb-Check Diet: Yes, you can still enjoy a big breakfast!

Mike Thayer 2016By Mike Thayer

Veggie egg scrambleBeing on a 'diet' doesn't mean you have to sacrifice great flavor or nutrition.  Yes, you too can eat breakfasts like bacon and eggs every day and lose weight!

Pictured right, a veggie egg scramble (mushrooms, onion, black olive) topped with American cheese and four strips of pepper bacon. What's missing? Nothing.... I used to eat something like this with a side of hash browns and toast.... but not anymore and the weight is coming off.

Combined with exercise, I'm also now just about off my high blood pressure medicine. I used to take a 40mg pill daily for that. I recently got reduced to a 10mg pill. In monitoring my blood pressure daily, I haven't taken a pill in four days now. I'm consistently at 120/80 and pulse in the '70s. Doc will be pleased and you can bet I am!

Coldwater Creek - Coralville


In the early '80's Ann and Dennis Pence were thriving young advertising and marketing executives who dreamed of quitting New York City, starting a new life in nature, and opening a business that inspired people. They were instantly captivated by the majestic scenery of the great Northwest and decided to set up shop in Sandpoint, Idaho, home to the state's largest lake and biggest ski resort. In 1984 they launched Coldwater Creek as a catalog business with the promise of bringing customers "beautiful, unexpected, and extraordinary things". 30 years have passed since then and we make the same promise today.


Over the next 30 years the brand grew beyond catalog to include a website, more than 350 stores, and countless loyal customers. And for many of these years "the Creek" as it's affectionately known enjoyed status as the place for exciting fashion, great advice on how to wear it, and famously good personal service. Collections were thrilling. Service broke records for excellence. Our unique catalogs were much anticipated by customers and mimicked by the competition. And the brand and its customers became one and the same, sharing a passion for great wearable fashion as well as simple values like honesty, optimism, curiosity and community. This was a magical time in the brand's life when the Creek was at its very best. And we're dedicated to bringing it back.

dressbarn - Coralville

DressbarnIn 1962, Roslyn Jaffe, mother of three, opened the first dressbarn store in Stamford, CT. At a time when women were wholly underrepresented in the workplace, Roslyn dared not only to work, but also to launch a new era in women's fashion. Designer label wool pencil skirts, sheer blouses, flares, furs, and leather coats were all the rage. And Roslyn offered her customers the very latest in women's designer styles. A year later the second dressbarn store was opened.

Soon after the inception of the business, her husband Elliot joined Roslyn and together they built the business as well as a reputation for quality, style, value, and customer service. With over 800 stores across the country, dressbarn strives to maintain its distinctive position in the marketplace by providing its own private labels and contemporary fashions at great value in an environment that is friendly and trustworthy. Today, dressbarn is part of the Ascena Retail Group, Inc. family and remains customer centric, extremely sensitive to and focused on the needs and desires of women in the 21st century. While society and its priorities continually change, dressbarn is poised to respond to these evolutionary trends.

Forever 21 - Coralville

Forever21FOREVER 21 has seen some remarkable accomplishments over the past 30 years.

With a goal to become an $8 billion company by 2017 and open 600 stores in the next three years, it’ll be exciting to see the company achieve in three years what it initially took 30 years to do.
did you know...
FOREVER 21 is the 5th largest specialty retailer in the United States.

A customer from Toronto named her daughter Tiev Forever Golding because she almost had her baby in a Forever 21 store. Once the child’s passport expires, they plan to legally change her first name to “FOREVER”.

The average FOREVER 21 store is 38,000 square feet, the largest is approximately 162,000 square feet and the original FASHION 21 store is only 900 square feet.

FASHION 21 rung up $700,000 in sales in its first year. The prior three businesses that occupied that building failed within the first year.

Even with the company’s tremendous growth, it still remains a family owned business.
