WARREN, Mich. (FranchisePOD.com) July 21, 2016 – Art Van Furniture, the Midwest’s number one furniture and mattress retailer and America’s largest independent furniture retailer, has named Neil Zimmer vice president of merchandising for Art Van PureSleep.
As Vice President of Merchandising, Zimmer will report directly to David Van Elslander, president of Art Van PureSleep. Zimmer will be responsible for overseeing all buying and merchandising activities, and will manage the company’s buyers and support teams.
“We welcome Neil with an eye toward growth,” said Van Elslander. “Neil’s reputation as a creative and strategic leader, coupled with his specialized expertise and proven track record in the retail bedding space, will add the needed horsepower to help us expedite our already aggressive growth plan.”
Zimmer joins Art Van PureSleep from Sleepy’s, where he played an instrumental role in product and business development, as well as the growth of the retailer to more than 1,000 stores. He began his career in 1993 by launching his own futon and mattress business with five locations, which he successfully operated for 10 years before taking on a merchandise and operations analyst role with Fortunoff, an upscale department store on the East Coast.
Art Van PureSleep has been on a path of strategic growth since its launch seven years ago. To date, there are 46 free standing and 56 in-store locations, and Zimmer will play an important role in the brand’s continued expansion.
