Art Van Furniture Debuts First Chicagoland Store In Orland Park, Illinois

WARREN, Mich., July 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Get ready Chicago, 'cause here Art Van Furniture comes!   Michigan's number one furniture and mattress retailer opened its first out-of-state retail store in Orland Park, Illinois on Thursday, July 18 with a Motown-themed grand opening celebration featuring a live performance by Dennis Edwards and The Temptations Review.


Over 700 Chicagoland guests and dignitaries were on hand for a ceremonial ribbon cutting as Art Van Elslander, founder and chairman of Art Van Furniture, Kim Yost, CEO, Gary Van Elslander, president, and Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin officially unveiled the company's first Art Van Furniture retail location outside of Michigan. Once inside the new 47,000 square foot store at 15080 S. LaGrange Road, attendees dined at Chicago-style and Michigan-made food stations, toured the showroom and clearance center, and sang along to the Motown beat. On Saturday, July 20, the store will host a free family fun day event for the public with face painting, clowns, balloon artists and the chance to win a $5,000 shopping spree as well as a trip to Disney World.

"I can't think of a more perfect home away from home for Art Van Furniture," said Van Elslander. "To be able to offer Chicagoland residents the unprecedented quality, value, and customer service we have built our 54 year reputation upon in Michigan is a true thrill."

The new Art Van Furniture location carries popular brands such as England, Broyhill Furniture, Roma Leather, Cindy Crawford Home and La-Z-Boy, among others. Art Van Furniture in Orland Park employs approximately 100 sales, delivery and management personnel.

Art Van Furniture will open five more Chicagoland retail stores in the coming months in Ford City- Chicago, Ill; Batavia, Ill; Bolingbrook, Ill; Elston Avenue- Chicago, Ill and Merrillville- Hobart, Indiana, adding 600 new jobs to the region.
