WARREN, Mich., June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A Flag Day salute to the red, white and blue! Art Van Furniture will invite Chicagoland families to turn in tattered or torn Old Glories on Wednesday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and receive new 3-by-5-foot American flags to display proudly and patriotically. The American-built company will ensure the old flags are respectfully disposed of in accordance with the U.S. Flag Code.

"Every day, Art Van Furniture helps Chicagoland families beautify their homes. On this Flag Day, we want America's enduring symbol of freedom to look bright and beautiful as it waves from front porches and backyards from Naperville to Merrillville, Bedford Park to Orland Park, and everywhere in between."
