For a craft store that likes to think of themselves as sparking people's imaginations, they don't carry enough general craft supplies. Recently, they have started going to carrying more home decor items. There are lots of stores that carry home decor.. Bring back the crafts! Their yarn selection has gotten better recently, but their beads are still well behind the times. They've sacrificed the needle arts for scrapbooking, but the scrapbooking stuff they carry is overpriced and not original. They have a nice selection of classes offered, and their craft time demos are fun to watch. The employees are friendly, even if it can be hard to find them without their red aprons on all the time. My biggest complaint has to be their clearance items. Hobby Lobby will clearance items quickly all the way down to 90%. Michael's would rather go 50% and then trash it all after months and months of waiting. Such a waste.
