Art Van Furniture will celebrate the grand opening of its Glendale Heights store with an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony March 2.
The Glendale Heights store, 125 E. Army Trail Road, is Art Van's 11th location in the Chicago area.
"We are very eager for Glendale Heights families to experience Art Van Furniture's spectacular selection of affordable home furnishings and our special brand of customer service," Art Van Furniture CEO Kim Yost said.

The new store, which will have more than 50 full and part-time jobs, is in the redesigned former Sports Authority location.
