AC Moore announced that it will close all of its 145 arts-and-crafts stores. The majority of the stores are located across the East Coast.

AC Moore’s parent company, Nicole Crafts, said that Michael’s (a larger craft store chain) will take over the leases for as many as 40 former AC Moore stores. AC Moore did not give a timeline for the store closings. It has already stopped accepting online orders. For best results, call the store before you shop to make sure it still has the items you want.

If you visit the AC Moore website, you will notice several large, brightly covered advertisements about storewide sales. Save 25% to 50% off the original price of many items – in store only. Holiday floral and décor is 50% off the original price, Melissa & Doug toys are 40% off the original price, and kids arts & crafts are 30% the original price. There are also deals on custom framing.

These sales could end whenever the stock runs out and as stores close. You may want to take advantage of the sales by visiting your local AC Moore as soon as possible. Now is a good time to pick up additional materials for your favorite type of crafting. It is also a good opportunity to purchase gifts for creative and crafty loved ones. Choose wisely! The store may close before it is possible for a return or exchange to be made.

There is a chance that your local AC Moore will become a Michael’s store. This can be good news! Michaels is a larger chain than AC Moore, and is more likely to be able to stay in business. The change means that artists and crafters won’t have to search for a new craft store to shop at. The original location will still provide that purpose – but under a different company.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
