Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft grand opening Thursday

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is celebrating its grand opening of the new Newnan Jo-Ann Sept. 12 through 14 in the Newnan Pavilion.

“As we open this new store, we are pleased to offer our sewing and crafting customers more of what they want — exciting new product lines, higher quality fabrics, better in-store presentations, and regionalized product offerings,” said Travis Smith, CEO and President of Jo-Ann Stores, Inc.

“The passion and expertise of our store Team Members, combined with insightful product demonstrations and project inspiration, will make this new store a one-stop creative destination in this community.”

In celebration of this new location in Newnan Pavilion off Highway 34 East/ Bullsboro Drive, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores will make a donation to support local education. One school in the community will receive a $2,000 grant which will be used to fund the educational project of its choosing.

In addition, coin boxes are located near store cash registers to collect donations to support the American Heart Association. The company, Team Members and generous customers provided more than $142,000 to the AHA through the coin box donations and various campaigns in 2012.

Finally, this new store will participate in merchandise donation programs to benefit national non-profit partners including The Kids In Need Foundation.

“As a proud community supporter, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is pleased to be able to make an impact locally — not only during our grand opening celebrations, but in our ongoing efforts,” states Smith.

Grand opening festivities will begin Thursday, Sept. 12, and continue through Saturday, Sept. 14, with doors opening at 9 a.m. each day. On Thursday, a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place 15 minutes prior to the 9 a.m. store opening with Newnan Mayor Keith Brady.
