Art Van Furniture Helps Chicagoland Flood Victims

Retailer's emergency flood relief program to help families replace furniture, mattresses and flooring

As record flooding following this week’s torrential rains continues to wreak havoc across Chicagoland, Art Van Furniture is stepping up to help area residents who have been impacted by devastating water damage. Starting Friday, July 14, 2017, Art Van Furniture is extending its best pricing — the company’s employee family purchase pricing — to flood victims through the Art Van Furniture Mattress and Flooring Emergency Flood Relief Program.

Guests at Chicagoland’s 12 Art Van Furniture and five Art Van PureSleep mattress stores are asked to bring in photos of their damaged furniture, mattresses or flooring — or an insurance claim— to receive the special discount on furniture, mattresses and flooring. The one-time purchase offer requires store or sales manager approval and expires in six months.

“We want to do all we can to assist Chicagoland families whose homes and furnishings have been damaged by the record-breaking flooding,” said Kim Yost, president and CEO of Art Van Furniture. “Art Van is committed to helping our neighbors pick up the pieces as they begin the painstaking process of repairing and refurnishing their homes.”

Art Van Furniture’s 12 Chicagoland stores are in Algonquin, Batavia, Bedford Park, Chicago (Elston Avenue), Downers Grove, Glendale Heights, Naperville, Orland Park, Schaumburg, Woodridge, Portage, Ind., and Merrillville, Ind. The five area Art Van PureSleep mattress stores are in Chicago (Ashland Avenue), Burbank, Willowbrook, Bloomingdale and Plainfield.
