A new Michaels arts and crafts store is opening soon at the Stonecrest shopping center, in the anchor space formerly occupied by a Borders bookstore.
An opening date for the store hasn't been announced yet, but both the sign in front and Stonecrest's website have it as "Coming Soon." There are currently four other Michaels stores in Charlotte.
Borders, of course, liquidated last year, closing about 400 big-box locations and costing nearly 11,000 employees their jobs. Much of that empty retail space is still sitting unoccupied as shopping centers and malls search for new, permanent anchor tenants.
Stonecrest also recently opened a new Soma Intimates store.
