The Michaels store inside the Barrow Crossing shopping center in Bethlehem is set to open this Friday, May 10. The specialty retailer sells arts and crafts supplies, frames, floral arrangements, wall decor, scrapbooking supplies and other merchandise, and the store is next door to PetSmart.
"The store looks great and we are getting such great comments from the community," Operations Manager Sandy Richardson said in an e-mail to Barrow Patch.
A separate event celebrating the store opening is planned for later this month.
"The May 19th Grand Opening will be a fun filled day with give-aways, things for the kids, and just a lot of fun things scheduled," Richardson wrote. "We are so excited to 'show off' our store and I think that the customers will like some of the new concepts."
