More than $55 million worth of retail merchandise from brands like Natuzzzi, La-Z-Boy, Modus, Ashley and Pallisner will be sharply discounted.

"Everything in these select locations will be on sale and must go," a spokesman said. In addition to liquidating product through these Art Van Furniture locations, American Signature Inc. will also sell Art Van products at several of the brands’ Value City Furniture locations.

 The sales will be held in the following cities at these locations:

 Once the stores open for the liquidation sales events on Thursday, July 2, store hours will be Monday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7p.m., until inventory is gone. Delivery and financing will also be available for customers.

“We are very excited to offer Art Van products at incredible, once in a lifetime prices,” said Pat Sanderson, COO American Signature Inc. “This is a very unique opportunity to get high quality products at rock bottom prices. Value like this does not come along every day and we encourage customers to take advantage of this opportunity while supplies last.”

 To staff the liquidation sales events, Value City Furniture also re-hired several at each store to help assist with the sale.

 “We are so happy to bring these former Art Van employees back into the stores to work with us as we liquidate these locations,” said Sanderson. “We know it’s a difficult time to be unemployed, and are thrilled to support these individuals and their local communities by offering this opportunity.”
