When it comes to arts and crafts, Michaels is the store to end all stores. When it comes to Black Friday sales, it looks like they are living up to their reputation.
Not only will the first 100 crafters in the door on Black Friday allegedly receive a free Godiva chocolate bar, but once they are the sales are fantastic. Items all over the store are marked down 40, 50, even 60% off of regular retail value. However what really seals the deal are the coupons adhered to the front page of Michaels 2012 Black Friday ad. The most notable of the five is for 30% off one’s entire purchase on Thanksgiving, INCLUDING sales items. This is followed by the 25% off entire purchase from 7 AM to noon on the big day, Black Friday.
So with the coupon on the front of the Michaels Black Friday advertisement print, customers can get not just 60% off of every roll of Celebrate it! Holiday ribbon, but up to 90% off. The same percentage could be used on plastic rolling organizers, designed to get the craft room under control. These coupons also permit customers to take up to 30% off the Cricut Expression 2, which will be on sale for $179.99 over the holiday weekend. That means savvy consumers who arrive early on Thursday can walk away with a $299.00 machine for only around $125.
The store isn’t just for the do-it-yourselfer either. It is packed with holiday decorations, art, and fun accessories. It is a great place to stock up on scrapbook paper, art supplies, easels, and ribbon.
The sale at Michaels begins on Thanksgiving, when the store opens at 4 PM and remains open until 11 PM. Deals begin again bright and early on Black Friday at 7 AM and at 8 AM on Saturday.
