ART VAN CELEBRATES OPENING OF NEW MICHIGAN STORE IN MUSKEGON

 WARREN, Mich., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Art Van Furniture, Michigan's largest furniture retailer, will celebrate the grand opening of a new store in Muskegon, Mich., on July 23. It will be the second grand opening ceremony of new stores by Art Van in two weeks.
 The new store, which features a 20,000-square-foot showroom plus a 5,000-square-foot Clearance Center, will employ 70 people and is located at 630 Seminole near Seaway.
 The store was acquired by Art Van from Vandervelde's about four months ago, and it is a new market area for Michigan's largest furniture retailer.
 "The Muskegon area is a vibrant and dynamic market," said Art VanElslander, the company's chairman and chief executive officer. "We are delighted with the reception we have received and with the opportunity of serving the people in this part of the state."
 Only two weeks ago, Art Van celebrated the opening of a new store in Ann Arbor, Mich. The company now operates 21 stores in Michigan.
 "We expect that we may open one or two more stores before the end of this calendar year," said VanElslander.
 Federal, state and local officials along with the media are expected to attend grand opening ceremonies which will begin at 11 a.m.
 Art Van, in addition to being the state's No. 1 furniture retailer, is the nation's 10th-largest furniture retailer.
