Pat Catans

DuBois Courier Express reports: 

Area crafters will be happy to know that the Pat Catan's Craft Center in DuBois will become a new Michaels store by late summer, according to The Michaels Companies Public Relations Manager Mallory Smith.

"We can confirm that after a comprehensive review, we have identified DuBois, Pa., as one of the 12 Pat Catan's locations that we intend to rebrand and reopen as new Michaels stores later this year," said Smith. "We look forward to reopening and inspiring the DuBois community to unleash their inner maker."

Smith said she expects the store to begin the conversion process around June 22 and reopen as a Michaels store in mid to late August.

The DuBois store, which is located in the DuBois Commons, near Lowe’s, opened Aug. 31, 2017.

The Sandy Township Pat Catan’s initially faced an uncertain future after its parent company, Michaels, announced in late January that all 36 locations in Ohio and surrounding states would close, and no more than 12 would reopen as Michaels stores. There are a total of 36 Pat Catan’s stores in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia and Indiana.

The local store employs about 33 people, both part- and full-time.

Like Pat Catan’s, Michaels also offers a large selection of craft, hobby, floral and art supplies.

I am glad Michaels' is coming, certainly didn't want to see another empty building and yes I too hope they keep the current employees, sure would like to see a clothing -department store type open up also maybe in the ex Bon Ton building.  I like to see what I'm buying and not 1 for going out of town or on-line shopping.  I miss BonTon
