100 New Jobs in Minneapolis

You might not think that adding a simple flooring service to a company would have such a positive impact on a community, but it looks like that’s exactly what is happening in the Minneapolis area right now. The Art Van Furniture company is adding a flooring line to all of its Michigan stores—which means new jobs in 33 different locations.

The thing is, if there are 33 companies with brand new flooring departments, you might think that over 100 jobs would be added. That’s only about 3 employees per store; if the flooring gets popular, hopefully that will mean even more jobs to help distribute, sell, and lay the flooring.
