Art Van Furniture opens new store in Indiana, US

Published 24 May 2017

Art Van Furniture has opened their fourth store in the US state of Indiana.

The Midwest's number one furniture and mattress retailer has announced the opening of a 41,857-square-foot store in Muncie, Indiana.

Formerly Dillman's Furniture and Mattress, the store is hosting a special grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7, located at 4701 N Wheeling Avenue.

"We are proud and excited to continue our legacy under a strong brand like Art Van Furniture," said John Dillman, owner of the former Dillman's Furniture and Mattress store, who will continue operating the store. "This opportunity gives us the ability to expand our product offerings, elevate our customer service and delivery experience—ultimately enabling us to grow our customer base."

The Dillman family has been serving East Central Indiana since 1976 with stores inKokomo, Peru, Anderson and Marion, Indiana. In August of 2001, John and Colette Dillman opened the Dillman's Furniture and Mattress Muncie location, and the veteran furniture retailers will continue operating the Art Van Furniture location.

"We are excited to work with the Dillman family, which has been an integral part of the East Central Indiana community for over 40 years," said Kim Yost, CEO of Art Van Furniture. "Together with John and Colette Dillman, we will continue to deliver on the family's promise of Making Comfort  Affordable. We look forward to establishing new Art Van Furniture traditions while keeping the personal family touch customers have become accustomed too."  

All employees have been retained, with additional hiring slated in the coming months. The new store will be home to many favorite Art Van Furniture product lines, including Art Van PureSleep and Art Van Clearance Center. The store is also undergoing extensive remodeling before grand opening.
