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.
