As of 2015, it is no longer possible for customers to order and purchase Gordmans products online, as the company has stopped its online shopping service. Customers can return any goods that were purchased through the company's official website at a physical store or by mail.
There are 98 Gordmans stores that are spread throughout 21 states. A Russian immigrant named Sam Richman established the first store in 1915 in the city of Omaha, Nebraska. The store chain received its name when Dan Gordman, a former employee at New York's Bloomingdale's, met and married Esther Richman in 1936 during a repair stop in Omaha on his way to California.
