Michaels Opening 25,000 sq foot store September 2016 in Alexandria, Virginia

This is an update to this post. As we told you first last year, Michaels, the national arts and crafts chain, will be opening its first location in the city of Alexandria, Virginia in the Bradlee Shopping Center.

We have confirmed from sources that the store will be opening for business on Sunday, September 4, 2016 during Labor Day weekend. A grand opening is planned for later in the month, likely 1-2 weeks after the initial soft opening.

As mentioned previously, the Alexandria Michaels store will be two (2) floors and roughly 25,000 square feet with a little more than 12,000 square feet at street level. The downstairs space was once part of the Washington Sports Club, which closed last year.

Michaels is the largest arts and crafts specialty retailer in North America, featuring art supplies, general crafts and seasonal/home décor.

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.
