The Midwest's number one furniture and mattress retailer is opening a new 45,000-square-foot showroom in Cadillac, MI on August 11.
The festivities will begin at 4:30pm with a ribbon cutting featuring remarks from Art Van Furniture CEO Kim Yost, and will continue throughout the weekend with giveaways and the chance to enter a $10,000 drawing for a home makeover. A free party on Saturday, Aug. 13, will provide family-friendly entertainment with clowns, crafts, live music and refreshments.
"As a Michigan company, we are proud to bring our stylish and affordable home décor to a new community in our home state," said CEO Kim Yost.
"At the same time, we are excited to create new career opportunities to job seekers in this thriving area."
From Friday, Aug. 12, through Wednesday, Aug. 31, guests at the new Cadillac location, along with those at the Midland and Mount Pleasant, will have the chance to enter a drawing for a $10,000 home makeover. The first 50 people on Saturday, Aug. 13, will receive a free gift, and anyone who makes a purchase of $499.99 or more on Saturday or Sunday will receive a $50 gift certificate.
