Sad news for New-Jersey based A.C. Moore - the company announced this week that it will be shutting down ALL of its more than 145 stores nationwide. They announced they won’t be taking any new online orders, but will still ship ones that have already been placed.
Michaels Craft Stores will take over about 40 of those stores and will reopen in 2020, but those particular stores have not yet been chosen.
6ABC reports that no time frame has yet been given on the overall transition or the closing of the chain’s other stores.
The city of Philly knows A.C. Moore very well - the company opened a major flagship store in 2017 at the corner of Broad & Chestnut Streets. We hope that one will at the very least get to stay open as a Michaels location!
