Michaels putting in new yarn selections (again)

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Was just in a local Michaels and the yarn was all over the place, in different aisles, on end caps. There was a sign saying "watch for our new yarn department", words to that effect.

 

I thought they did that not too long ago. Will have to check the other Michaels by me during the week to see if they are changing it also. Anyone else notice it in their stores?

I'll be stopping at Michael's during the week since I have to pick up something for my Dd. I'll have to check it out. I hope it's not all the ruffly yarn like Starbella, etc.

Michael's and similar chains do a major reset usually twice a year, with minor seasonals on a regular basis.  Yarn is usually a good seller during tough economic times, so that may be why they seem to be expanding.

 

Since they often employ special teams for the major resets to work wiht the regular employees, it is usually done on a sort of rolling basis

 

It will be interesting to see if they are going to try the private label stuff again or even add/remove some brands.

Last time that note was up in the two Michales stores I shop, the yarn dept got smaller!

I don't typically go to Michael's because it's the farthest away of the three craft stores in my area (HL and JoAnn's being the other two). I'm currently on a self-imposed yarn buying freeze, but maybe I'll make a trip out there once it's time to restock!

I was at the second Michaels by me the other day (there are two within a four mile radius) and that one was just the same with no indication yet of new yarns. Will just keep an eye out whenever I am there since you never know what you will find.

 

What I like is when they start clearancing out yarn to make room for  new stuff. That is when I get into more trouble, LOL!!!
