Art Van's Wild Black Friday Sale

Art Van logoAt this time of year, we are pretty much bombarded with Black Friday press releases. So far the most entertaining -- and complicated -- one is this missal from Art Van, a Michigan-based furniture retailer.
Michigan's largest furniture chain, Art Van Furniture is going "BIG" for Black Friday! It all begins at 6am on Friday, November 26th at all 33 locations statewide with free door buster gifts. Then the BIG fun begins! Art Van Furniture is offering amazing deals including the most popular chair of the season as low as $38 and great accessories for as little as ten dollars. And throughout the stores, free furniture, free electronics and free TVs will be offered as bonus gifts with purchases.
It's just so complex -- they've even included a charity drive in the middle of Black Friday shopping! The line about soap star Dierdre Hall going from store to store on an excruciatingly tight timetable had us laughing out loud. Do shoppers have to hand Dierdre some toothpaste to get their free book?
Plus, shoppers can meet big time Soap Star Deidre Hall of NBC's "Days of Our Lives." The stunningly beautiful actress will be signing her new "Kitchen Closeup" cookbook, along with the "Days of Our Lives: 45 Years a Celebration in Photos" coffee table book at the Art Van showroom on Eureka Road in Taylor from Noon to 1pm, and across from Lakeside Mall on Hall Road in Shelby Township from 3pm to 4pm. The first 100 guests in line who bring donations of toiletries for the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries "Genesis House" will receive a free copy of Ms. Hall's new book. Donations needed include shampoo, toothpaste and soap.
Art Van even throws in a free Snuggies offer at the end of the release.
All Art Van Black Friday shoppers will receive the lowest prices of the year PLUS special financing offers to 2015 and no sales tax on any purchase. The first 100 customers in any store will also receive a free "Snuggies" blanket or a free book light.
The craziness may make a trip to Art Van worth it on Black Friday. You may want to call ahead and see if they will have a Snuggie or a book light if you are going to try and be one of the 100 early birds.. We have to wonder if the Art Van execs watch this past weekend's Black Friday skit?
