Happy Wednesday, friends. It is once again time for Today’s News for Women over 50.
I want to begin Today’s news with a comment about how I am curating these headlines.
It is a very natural process for me…I literally search the communications world for the best information from trusted resources.
Information, I believe, that will be helpful to the women over 50 audience.
However, there are times those resources get the story wrong…..as happened last week.
A few websites ran with the story that JoAnn Fabrics was closing several locations.
I heard from a representative of the company immediately last Wednesday to offer clarification:
“In 2023, JOANN will proudly celebrate 80 years of inspiring handmade happiness in millions of customers and more than 20,000 Team Members. While our ecommerce business continues to grow, our stores provide customers an enjoyable experience to connect with others, learn new skills and explore their creativity. Despite unfounded reports, JOANN has no plans to close its physical stores, and will continue to be the source for creators to bring their inspiration to reality. In alignment with standard brick and mortar business processes, JOANN closes stores occasionally while simultaneously investing in, and opening brand new stores to best meet the needs of our customers. JOANN is scheduled to close only eight stores — out of our field of over 800 — over the next three months, and there are a myriad of instances which would yield Team Members to receive severance packages.
Over the course of 2022, JOANN has:
- Relocated 20 stores to ensure the most optimal shopping experience is available to our customers, based on research analytics.
- Updated eight stores with Store Merchandise Optimization, which provides a product assortment tailored to the needs and desires of customers within the market, as a proactive action based on customer feedback.
- Completely remodeled five stores with new store features, technological advancements, innovative branding and more.
- Opened a new JOANN location in Myrtle Beach, SC.
JOANN will continue to unveil new stores with updated features and offerings in 2023.
JOANN physical store locations and the ecommerce business will continue to be available to customers, as we advance our mission to inspire creativity. “
I know this is good news for some of you, and wanted to make sure I got the word out to you as sent to me.
