Michaels at Stonecrest opens in August

Crafty folks, get ready: Arts and crafts retailer Michaels is opening its new store in Stonecrest shopping center, near Rea Road and I-485, on Sunday, August 12.

The store is filling what used to be Borders, before the bookseller declared bankruptcy and liquidated last year. Another former Borders, at Morrocroft Village shopping center, looks set to become a DSW shoe store.

The new Michaels will open with a 9:45 a.m. ribbon cutting. "The new store features an open design with wider aisles, warm colors and brighter lighting. Key departments, such as scrapbooking, jewelry and kids are expanded and re-organized for easy shopping," Michaels said in a press release.

For its first week, the store will feature discounts, giveaways, and crafting demonstrations, Michaels said.

Based in Irving, Texas, there are 1,070 Michaels stores in the US and Canada. The company also operates Aaron Brothers stores.
