NORMAN — Michaels, North America’s largest arts and crafts specialty retailer, announced the grand opening of its new Norman store Sep. 29, featuring an inspiring new design, at 2040 24th Ave. NW.

In addition, customers can win items for the whole family from the prize wheel, which includes jewelry, art supplies, stickers, colorful duct tape and more. The celebration continues through the week with gift basket giveaways each evening, and kids can explore their creativity with $2 kids crafting events on Saturdays.

“We hope everyone will come out to help us celebrate during our grand opening festivities on Sept. 29,” store manager Debbie Coughran said. “Our new store features thousands of products that will inspire every crafter at any level from beginner to expert, plus classes for our customers to learn new skills in painting, cake decorating, knitting, scrapbooking and more.”

The store features an open design with wider aisles, warm colors and brighter lighting. Key departments are expanded and reorganized for easy shopping:
