A new business is coming to the Spring Meadows shopping complex.

Art Van Furniture bought the property where there used to be a movie theatre.

Construction is already underway, and a spokesperson for the business said they hope to have a grand opening this fall.

Art Van is a Michigan-based company. The new location will be their first store in Ohio.

Other businesses and shoppers in the area were happy to see the new company.

"It shows people want to come to this part of the state," said Val Kops, a Toledo resident. "It will help the economy. Hopefully everything will pick up."

Art Van is holding a career fair on Thursday, May 2. They have more than 100 positions to fill – everything from sales to housekeeping. The spokesperson said they hope to see at least 2,000 people in attendance.

The fair will be held at the Best Western on Summit Street from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
