A.C. Moore's parent company is closing all of the chain's outlets, including the one in the Dedham Mall. Some could become Michaels stores; no word on whether that includes the Dedham store.
They opened a brand-new AC Moore store at Fresh Pond shopping center in Cambridge just this past February. It replaced one that they had closed in Assembly Square.
I doubt that Michaels will want to take this location over, as they already have a store nearby in Porter Square.
AC Newman content!
I hope michaels takes over the dedham one; there's zero craft supplies between fenway/symphony dick blick and the norwood michaels right now.
There's a Michael's in Porter Square (mentioned above) and a Blick in Central Square.
...... neither of which are between Fenway and Norwood, you know, the southern half of the metro area, which everybody forgets exists, I guess? Where the Dedham location in question is?
There's no Michaels in Norwood.
The Michael's is at University Station in Westwood, by the Target
There's a Jo-Ann in West Roxbury by the Taco Bell. They have a full array of craft supplies. They don't sell the full range of fine arts supplies that Blick does though.
That Jo-Ann Fabrics has been closed for a long while now.
Joanns closed over a year and a half ago, my bro, when the building had flooding issues. There's some kind of other business in there now.
I miss the Windsor Button Shop
I went to the Alewife one and was really disappointed. The whole store was just a bunch of follow-the-instructions craft kits. I asked if they sold purse frames and they looked at me as if I had three heads. Which of course I can buy online. So yeah, maybe they're right to get out of the business.
