The filing concluded an extremely busy weekend. Turnout was so high, stores had to temporarily close over the weekend so workers could reorganize and restock.

The location on 14 Mile in Warren shut down Saturday due to overwhelming response and traffic back-ups.

On Thursday, the furniture company announced it is closing all of its locations and beginning liquidation sales. More than 3,000 employees across the Midwest will be losing their jobs. Most of them are in Michigan.

Liquidation sales began March 6 at all Art Van Furniture, Art Van PureSleep and Scott Shuptrine Interiors in Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana and Missourri.
