SUSSEX COUNTY — Gordmans on Monday announced that it is moving forward as planned with its previously announced March 17 new store openings in Seaford and Milford, but has cancelled its previously announced ribbon-cutting ceremonies.

The cancellations are to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as part of an ongoing effort to comply with recommendations from state, local and national officials to keep its guests, associates, partners and facilities safe, the company announced.

All other elements of Gordmans’ grand opening activities will continue, including honoring the commitment to local high schools in each new store location by providing them with a $1,000 donation to help support their high school activities.

Seaford High School and Milford High School are the recipients.

The new Gordmans stores are located in Seaford at 22970 Sussex Highway and in Milford 654 N. Dupont Highway in Milford Plaza.

Gordmans, whose motto is “where big brands meet everyday low prices,” is part of the Stage community of stores that is delivering a whole new shopping experience.
