When I need craft supplies, I prefer Michaels to Hobby Lobby. It's still primarily a craft store, whereas H.L. has so much home décor. The crafts are so spread out around the perimeter. I like the ease of shopping at Michaels. It's smaller, so it's easier and faster to navigate from beading to scrap book supplies and so forth. I have always found the cashiers helpful and friendly. And I like the fact that Michaels has honored Hobby Lobby coupons. Hobby Lobby did not honor Michaels coupons last time I checked (unless that has changed). Also, Michaels has better coupon deals at various times throughout the year, including discounts on your entire purchase, not just on a single item. And they are open on Sunday. Hobby Lobby isn't.
