Another big chain shutting down which will close two stores in our area. New Jersey arts and crafts retailer, A.C. Moore announced that they are closing all 145 of their locations. Michael's craft store is said to be taking over the leases on 40 of them. For us, that means we will lose an A.C. Moore in both Latham and Saratoga. (The Latham location already has a Michael's nearby.) The company says that they will take their last online orders on Monday. No word yet on closing sales, but I am hoping to see the clearance signs going up soon!
