VIDEO: Founder Art Van attends grand re-opening of store in Portage

by

PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Art Van Furniture is celebrating an "All New Kalamazoo!"  The Kalamazoo furniture store is ringing in the New Year with a brand new look and feel.  The two-level store (located at 550 King Road, Portage, MI) features a major redesign and renovation that begins at the store's front entrance and extends to both floors, with all-new updates throughout all of its major departments, including Paul's TV and PureSleep departments. Watch above for an interview with the man himself, Mr. Art Van Elslander.

"We're excited for everyone to see our newly redesigned Kalamazoo store," said Art Van Elslander , founder and chairman of Art Van Furniture.  "The renovations were made with the specific intent to provide our guests with an even more inviting and delightful shopping experience.  I couldn't be more pleased with the results!"

The facelift starts with the view from the entrance, which now features an open showroom with a higher ceiling greeting guests and introducing the Art Van Furniture brand. The redesign also includes updated finishes and new graphics throughout the store, in addition to a new PureSleep Aisle, a new Clearance Center and a new core (offices, restrooms, ready room, and lunch room for its employees).

The main level's renovations also feature updates in Upholstery, Leather, Master Bedroom, Paul's TV, Dining, Recliners, Motion, Entertainments, and H.O.M.E.S. collections. In addition, new signage has been added to centrally located elevator and staircase leading guests to the lower level. The bottom level features the redesigned Clearance Center, plus a newly renovated Showroom Youth department.

As part of the grand-reopening celebration, every item in the store is on sale, with an additional 15% off the sale price.  Guests can also enter to win the following while visiting the store: a $5000 Art Van Furniture shopping spree; a 51" 3D Samsung HDTV with two pair of 3D glasses; a trip to Disney World for four people; and furniture and mattress prizes.               

Art Van Furniture continues to expand in presence in Michigan.  In addition to the redesign of the Kalamazoo store, the furniture chain welcomes two new franchise stores in Alpena and Mount Pleasant.  Ribbon cutting ceremonies will be held at both stores on Thursday, January 17.  Additional special events will be held throughout January and February.  For more information, go to www.artvan.com.
