If you're looking for Michaels in East Gate Square on Nixon Dr. in Mt. Laurel, the location has closed.  But don't worry, because a new Michaels has just opened just steps away at Moorestown Mall.

The new Michaels is located in part of the space that used to be home to Macy's.  It's part of a row of new stores that includes HomeSense, Sierra, and Five Below.

 


According to Wikipedia, Michaels started in 1973 in Dallas, TX.  By 1982, there were 11 stores.and by 1996, the number had grown to 450 stores.

One of Michaels' main competitors, AC Moore, announced in November that it would be closing all of its locations.  In fact, an AC Moore in East Gate Square is in the process of selling off its inventory in preparation for closing.

Michaels has several other locations in our area, including a store in Marlton Crossing on Rt. 73.
