Michaels, the largest specialty retailer of arts, crafts, and home décor in North America, will host a Grand Opening community celebration for its new location in London, KY on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Kicking-off with a ribbon cutting ceremony, the event will offer free crafts and Maker demos, giveaways, local food favorites, and more at this fun-filled celebration to mark Michaels new store opening.
This new Michaels location will bring numerous full-time and part-time jobs to the London community. Located at 106 London Shopping Center, the new store is a sleeker, simpler Michaels featuring self-checkout registers, a Michaels Custom Framing center, and a curated assortment of the most popular supplies and componentry across arts, crafts, framing, floral, kids’ crafts, DIY, yarn, beading, and scrapbooking to inspire Makers’ creativity in the surrounding community.
“As a local, I am so excited we’re opening our first Michaels in London!” said Darrick Samples, Store Manager. “Our whole team is thrilled to offer the best of Michaels to London’s creative community of Makers, teachers, small business owners and more. Everyone is welcome at our craft table!”
Michaels will open several new stores with this updated format featuring self-service “Buy Online Pick-Up In Store” (BOPIS) and curbside pick-up. The new format represents Michaels’ ongoing innovations across every facet of the business, bringing Makers a more seamless shopping experience.
“At Michaels, our mission is to empower every Maker to bring their creative dreams to life,” said Ashley Buchanan, Chief Executive Officer at Michaels. “Getting closer to our Makers allows us to provide them with not only a destination to shop but also a place to get inspired. We’re proud to be bringing even more of that inspiration to the already creative community of London.”
