As A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts in Centerville open its doors later this month, the company is planning giveaways and looking for employees.
The new store will open at 251 E. Bell Road in the Cross Pointe Center at 8 a.m. Oct. 27. The first 100 customers in line will get a free $10 gift card. There will be other doorbuster deals, raffle prizes, crafts and giveaways throughout the weekend.
Members of the military, college students and teachers also get an additional 15 percent off at A.C. Moore every time they shop.
“The A.C. Moore brand is thriving, and with multiple area stores opening this year, the company is positioned to become the new destination for the creative community in Ohio,” said A.C. Moore president Anthony Piperno. “We look forward to sharing our brand, products and vision with the community, and providing inspiration and an unmatched in-store shopping experience to area artists, crafters, teachers and moms.”
A store near Columbus will also open on Oct. 27, joining three other Ohio openings this year and three more opening in the coming months, said spokeswoman Anastasia Barbalios. A.C. Moore, which has operated for more than 30 years, first expanded into Ohio when it opened a store in Columbia Twp. near Cincinnati in June.
The store plans to hire 25 to 30 employees and those interested can apply online.
This news organization first reported that A.C. Moore would open a store in August after Montgomery County records showed a $200,000 renovation of the nearly 20,000 square-foot store.
