Art Van Furniture to Conduct Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at New Fort Wayne, Indiana Store May 17

WARREN, Mich., May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — It’s time to celebrate! Art Van
Furniture will host an official ribbon cutting ceremony at its Fort Wayne,
Indiana store (311 Coliseum Blvd. across from Glenbrook Mall) after a fire
delayed the festivities. The 46,000 square foot Art Van Furniture store has been
open since late January but the ribbon cutting was delayed after a fire broke
out in the showroom on February 14. The renovations are completed and the new
ribbon cutting date is Saturday, May 17, at 9:30 a.m.

Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry will do the honors along with executives of Art Van
Furniture. Other dignitaries, including members of the Fort Wayne Chamber of
Commerce, are expected to attend. Members of the community are invited as well.

“This ceremonial ribbon cutting is our opportunity to publicly thank the
community for the warm welcome we have received,” said Art Van Elslander,
founder and chairman of Art Van Furniture. “We are thoroughly enjoying working
hand in hand with the families of Fort Wayne to enhance and beautify their
homes.” In addition, Art Van Furniture will also host a free family fun day from
9 a.m. to 9 p.m. featuring face painting, clowns, giveaways and entertainment.

The new Fort Wayne location features popular name brands such as Broyhill, Roma
Leather, Cindy Crawford Home, La-Z-Boy, and Art’s Backyard among others as well
as mattresses and an Art Van Clearance Center. The retailer has brought
approximately 50 full and part-time jobs to the area, and is well-known for
giving back to the communities it serves.

The Midwest’s No. 1 furniture and mattress retailer’s first Indiana store
debuted in Merrillville-Hobart in 2013.
