Art Van, Schneider's Appliance Sets Franchise Agreement
Thomas Lynch and Tamara Lynch, co-owners of Schneider's, will open the new store this summer.
"There is a special passion and pride for our communities that family-owned businesses like Art Van Furniture and Schneider's Appliance possess," said Art Van Elslander, founder and chairman of Art Van Furniture. "We are proud to partner with Thomas and Tamara Lynch as we continue to build upon our strong commitment to serve our home state of Michigan."
The new Art Van Furniture/Schneider's Appliance store will add on 10,000 square feet to create an expanded 24,000-square-foot showroom dedicated to furniture and appliances. The venture will add approximately 15 new jobs in the community.
The Lynches purchased Schneider's Appliance 16 years ago from lifetime resident, Don Ehrke. The store, which has been a staple in Owosso for 60 years, will remain open during construction. An August grand opening celebration is planned.
"There is nothing more important to us than providing the best products and services to our neighbors, and this exceptional opportunity to partner with the most respected furniture retailer in Michigan was one we couldn't pass up," the Lynches said.
