In working on getting inventory ready for the project Samantha and I have been putting hours [months?] into, we’ve been buying a lotttta craft supplies. So I was over the moon when Michaels invited me to check out the new look of their Saugus store!
Twenty-seven stores in the Boston area, actually, recently received makeovers, and I was so impressed with the new design. I think about the Michaels locations I grew up visiting [feeding my teenage obsession for scrapbooking…. #nerd], and they were crowded… cluttered…. confusing…. these recently redesigned stores [all in the greater Boston area to start!] are so much brighter, more colorful, and the layout just makes a ton more sense. The openness is the first thing you notice– it’s incredibly inviting.
The Michaels team invited some Boston bloggers to check out the unveil before the official grand re-opening celebrations this weekend [details below!]. We dove right into the Michaels experience and
created works of art attempted this paper-on-canvas project [the above piece belongs to Amy. Mine will not be pictured for lack-of-artistic-talent reasons].
[ Red is EVERYWHERE now! Makes it so much easier to locate the sales associates!]
The stores now feature an expanded home decor section– hello coastal finds!
This Sunday marks the grand re-opening of the 27 Boston-area stores, with a ribbon cutting at each at 9:45am. The first guests in the store have the chance to win up to $1000 in gift cards, so get there early! Jo Pearson will even be at the Saugus location– CraftWars fans here?!
