Art Van Furniture Complaint - "Compare at pricing"
NUMEROUS OUTLETS, MICHIGAN -- This furniture store runs perpetual advertising that features %off sales for furniture and home furnishing accessories including mattresses.
The percent off discounts are fraudulent in that they are discounts off fictitious original prices which Art Van call "compare at prices". These prices have no validity by Art Van's own admission that they do not necessarily reflect any real price ever charged by anyone for the items.
Art Van inflates profits by selling "add-ons" such as extended warranties and cleaning/refurbishing products or protections. These items also do not have contents labels, which is illegal as they may cause illness or death if ingested.
