COLUMBUS, Ohio — American Signature here said it will open its Value City Furniture and American Signature stores on Thanksgiving evening for the first time this year.
In a release, the Top 100 company, with 126 store in 18 states, said its "Black Friday" prices will be available online Wednesday, Nov. 27, starting at 9 p.m., on Thanksgiving in stores from 9 p.m. to midnight and on Black Friday from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.
