WARREN, Mich., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As momentous as going away to school can be, it is one of the most stressful situations of an ambitious young person's life. This year, Art Van Furniture is offering positive perks to students designed to make the transition to campus life easier, lighter and less costly. Michigan's largest furniture retailer now allows students to make purchases at any Art Van Furniture store (online, too), then pick up their goods at an Art Van location near their respective Michigan college campuses.
"There are close to 200 colleges and universities throughout Michigan with tens of thousands of students making a new home-away-from-home every semester or quarter," explains Art Van Furniture President, Gary Van Elslander. "This program will allow them to travel lighter without the worries of how to get their new furniture from home to school."
In addition, Art Van carries an extensive inventory to satisfy all back to school needs – including sleep, study and storage. All Art Van stores are currently stocked with smartly designed futon and sofa sleepers, efficient study sets, and clever storage units. Art Van will also deliver mattresses for students who are furnishing off-campus apartments.
Dubbing itself "Your Back to School Headquarters," along with the pickup program and the wide ranging merchandise, Art Van also presents a number of cost saving back to school benefits such as up to 80% off, no tax, and 0% for 12 months.
