The Avenue East Cobb will soon be home to Michaels, North America’s largest arts and crafts specialty retailer. The store plans to relocate to The Avenue East Cobb this fall from its existing location in the East Cobb market. The new store concept will offer a bigger, brighter classroom space, a dedicated framing kiosk, and a fresh product mix of floral, jewelry-making and scrapbooking supplies for hobbyists and home decorators.

The grand opening activities will include instructional classes, children’s events and gift card giveaways sponsored by The Avenue East Cobb.

“Michaels is a welcome addition to the retailer mix at The Avenue East Cobb.” said Mike Cohn – executive vice president, Cousins Properties Inc. “The upgraded product mix will appeal to the existing customers and attract seasoned jewelry artisans and craft enthusiasts.”

There are more than 1,090 Michaels stores in 49 states and Canada, including 10 stores in metro-Atlanta.

Seems like just about anything would have been better than a Michaels. The quality just isn't there, and there are some other retailers that would have filled a gap in what's needed in the area. Very disappointing.

So disappointed, I don't think Michaels is a good fit for The Avenue.

And East Cobb witnesses the decline of yet another strip mall

Build it and they will decay

So how are all those apartments and townhomes going over there?

East Cobb will be Austell in 5 years
