Art Van Furniture to Open Second Chicagoland Franchise in Portage, Indiana

Lynn's Bedroom City location to reopen as Art Van Furniture in January 2016 with expanded product offerings.

WARREN, Mich. - Nov. 5, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Two respected family-owned home furnishing retailers will come together to serve guests in Portage, Indiana early next year. Art Van Furniture, the Midwest's No. 1 furniture and mattress retailer, has signed a franchising agreement with Scott Lynn and Mitchell Lynn, owners of Lynn's Bedroom City for their Portage location (6245 U.S. 6). Construction and renovation are currently underway at the 10,800 square foot store, which will reopen in January 2016 as Art Van Furniture.

"Scott and Mitchell Lynn share our commitment to hands-on, superior customer service," said Art Van Elslander, founder and chairman of Art Van Furniture. "Their business values and philosophy operating Lynn's Bedroom City align with ours. This partnership is a natural fit, and we are pleased to welcome Scott and Mitchell to the Art Van Furniture family."

Lynn's Bedroom City was founded in Merrillville, Indiana in 2001 by Jerry Lynn and his son, Scott. When Jerry Lynn passed away in 2010, Scott's brother, Mitchell Lynn, became his partner in the business. By 2014, the company had grown to a total of six Indiana locations, including Valparaiso and two stores in Merrillville. The company's store in DeMotte, Indiana operates as Lynn's Carolina House Furniture. Scott and Mitchell's mother, Lydia Lynn, is also active in the company.

"We have always admired Art Van Furniture as one of the premier family-owned furniture retailers in the United States, and joining forces will create an exciting new chapter for our company," said Scott Lynn. Added Mitchell Lynn, "This partnership will allow us to strategically expand our product line offerings and put us in a stronger position to achieve our growth potential."

The new Art Van Furniture in Portage will feature such name brands as La-Z-Boy, Broyhill, Flex Steel, Southern Motion, Bernhardt as well as Natuzzi and Roma Leather lines. It will also house a state-of-the-art Art Van PureSleep and Art Van Clearance Center.

The Portage location will be the second Art Van Furniture franchise in Chicagoland, and the tenth Art Van Furniture store in the region. The retailer's current Chicagoland stores are in Batavia, Bedford Park, Chicago (Logan Square), Downers Grove, Naperville, Orland Park and Woodridge (Bolingbrook) in Illinois and Merrillville, Indiana. Art Van Furniture's first franchise location opens this month in Rockford, Illinois. An eleventh store is slated to open in Algonquin, Illinois in May, 2016. For more information, visit artvan.com.
