I am so delighted to share with you all the new things Michaels stores will have to offer in with the new store shops they have created. I was invited to a special event where we learned all about the new features you will be seeing in Michaels stores soon. Let me tell you I am excited about these new store features and I know you will be too!
What’s New at Michaels
I will let you in on a little secret, denim is hot this year for crafting. Michaels stores have a ton of great denim crafting supplies. This is a little bulletin board I made using some of the items in their new denim shop to be featured in stores soon.
There is a product line called Make Market in Michaels stores. This new area is dedicated to DIY projects and home décor ideas – all made with simple, on-trend surfaces and textures like chalk, denim, galvanized, burlap and cork. I can’t wait to go back to get some more supplies soon.
On the end caps throughout the store there will be featured ideas for you to make yourself. Like this simple and cute wreath idea. Everything to make it is right below the picture, plus you can add your own personal flair. There are so many choices of colors and styles to choose from. Michaels just gets you started, then you add the pieces to make it yours.
The Jewelry department now has special overhead lighting. You can now see how vibrant the colors are for your next jewelry project. This lightening is similar to the lightening used in jewelry stores to make the colors pop and sparkle. This is a great experience while you shop. I loved this idea and it made a huge difference in the jewelry department.
Framing at Michaels
I am sure you know Michaels has a framing department, but did you know they are number one in the US? I was amazed to hear this news. All of their frames are custom made for their stores. Michaels has special technology in the store so you can see what your item will look like matted and with a frame. It is easy to compare different styles and colors to find just the right frame for you. This is all done right in the store. Plus Michaels always has great prices on their framing at any time.
New Grand Opening in SouthLake
Stop by this Sunday to see the new Southlake Michaels store for yourself – located at 1051 E. Southlake Blvd! Grand opening celebrations begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a performance by the Carrol Dragon Cheer Squad at 9:45 a.m., followed by hourly prize giveaways and a DJ from 3-5p.m. Get there early – the first 100 in line receive mystery gift cards of $10-$100! Who couldn’t use a $100 gift card to craft?
