Craft lovers in the City of Alexandria, Virginia will soon have a new place to shop in Bradlee Shopping Center.
Michaels, the national arts and crafts chain, will be opening its first location in the City limits in the shopping center. Sources tell me they will be taking over the current Dress Barn location at the center. It is unclear at this time when the Dress Barn lease is up. As soon as I find out, as usual, our readers will be the first to know.
The store’s layout always features wide aisles and departments including home decor, jewelry and art supplies.
The Alexandria Michaels store will be roughly 25,000 square feet with a little more than 12,000 square feet at street level.
Customers are also offered a variety of classes at Michael’s stores, including courses in jewelry making and paper crafting.
