Art Van Furniture to Open 10th Store in Chicago Area
The Warren, Mich.-based retailer will open a store in Algonquin, Ill., in a 48,000-square-foot space. The space is currently occupied by Gordmans department store. The Gordmans location will be closing this fall.
"We have been eager for guests in Chicago's northwest suburbs to experience Art Van Furniture's spectacular selection of affordable home furnishings as well as our unique brand of exceptional customer service," said Kim Yost, CEO of Art Van Furniture. "We look forward to working hand in hand with families at our new store in the Algonquin Commons lifestyle center to enhance their homes and their lives."
The new Art Van store will create 40 full-time and part-time jobs.
Art Van currently operates seven Chicago-area stores in Illinois and one in Indiana. The retailer will open its first franchise location in Rockford, Ill., next month.
